Re: ibanez 540 with backstop

it depends on the guitar conditions and if it's all original (pickups, finish etc). if they're good then the price is ok, especially if it's a Radius or a Power.

Re: ibanez 540 with backstop

I always figure that a backstop adds $100 to the value of the guitar it's on. So, what you have to ask yourself is if the guitar itself is worth $300. If you're just buying it to get the backstop, I'd pass. Especially if the guitar's condition is rough. You'd be better off just paying $125 for a backstop alone. --Jason
