Help verify this guitar please

A700379 is the serial.

Supposed to be an 87 540p.

The headstock has no logo which scares me.

It can't be done with the serial # alone.

The neck seems legit, but the body might be a custom cut. Seems odd without a neck pickup.

Still a nice guitar.........though I don't blame you for passing on it. The price is a little high for what it is.

Say what? It's completely correct for an original 540P.

http://www.guitar-museum.com/guitar-...lectric-guitar

It's a guitar with a filled neck pickup as well as two of the dip switch holes. He took the larger third switch (which is a 3-way) and moved it to the first hole and is likely using it like a JS/JPM selector.

Regardless, $400 is way to much for that. Original 540P's don't hold a lot of value and you can get a really cherry one for just over $400.
