There were several types of S540s out there during the last decade. Umm.. Maybe we could help you more if you posted a bit more info about it, like inlays, finish, pickup config, neck joint type and the serial number.

Oh, and do you know it's custom made or is there just the 'custom made' inlay on the fretboard?? Most of them had that inlay, although they were all regular production models.

But the S540 is definately a nice guitar. I've got a '95 S540ltd and a higly modded S470. That body shape is killer

Umm.. since I don't know much about ESP guitars, I can't give you much info about it... Play your friends guitar, then decide.
Basically, if it's really an ESP guitar and not an LTD, you could get 2 S540s for it. At least that's what I would do

My guess is that he's referring to a late 90s (98?) S540QS (QS for quilted saple), with Wizard neck, abalone ovals and the "Custom Made" inlay at fret 21. The color may be TK (transparent black), which looks more like a deep chocolate (that seems closest to "tiger brown" he describes). The pickups were QMs and they had a lo-pro edge. I've been trying out a bunch of S540s, and just picked up one of these S540QS's for $400. I've seen quite a few of them go for under $500. But this may turn out to be the S540 I settle on. It looks cool, feels great and I really like the idea of the bubinga stripe on these late-model Wizard necks. Can't say much about the QMs yet: they've gotten mixed reviews, but it seems like most people swap them out.
