Were the IBZUSA's really made by dimarzio? Or does it depend on what year and what model guitar they are on?
Are there any other 540RJR owners out there?
I've had several 540R guitars over the years. My fave stock guitar, period. A few jewel blues, a couple blueburst, a redburst, a white 440, uh...
Yes, the pups are DiMarzio. F1 is very similar to a Breed bridge and C1s are basically HS1 singles.
And look inside the trem cavity. It might have a tremstop unit. If so, and if you don't use it, sell it on eBay and make $50 ;-) .
88 was a good year. In solid colors, it had the best body shape (they varied slightly) and a 5-way switch (87s had minis).
Congrats. I love those guitars.
