Ibanez 540S from 1989

Hi. I am new to posting here, although I have been using these forums for a long time for information. I recently found someone selling a 1989 Ibanez 540S Sabre for less than $400. I had just had a major disappointment with one of these guitars, as someone local had one they were going to sell me for $400, but upon inspection I found that someone had swapped the Edge for a Bendmaster Deluxe. Now I am lusting for one of these things. I am fully prepared to buy and pay for this 540S right now, but I don't want to end up getting burned. My concern is that the action looks a little uneven in the pictures. It seems like the action is just right near the 2nd fret, but is much too high near the 12th. I am concerned that this might be indicative of a neck or bridge problem. I was wondering if you guys could take a look at these pics and tell me what you think. I appreciate any feedback.

Ugh... it won't let me post pictures because I don't have at least 10 posts.
