My new 1988 540 Saber

Here it is.......just got it. Its in great shape. Has a big nick in the recess of the input jack, but other than that, it is great. original edge trem and original IBZUSA pickups. Also came with the backstop, which was just an added bonus......I love those things. Has the Pennsylvania neck plate.....

I took the tone knob off myself, and moved the volume knob to the tone knob location......just my personal preference. It didn't come that way.....

damn nice. the neck looks like it could use a bit of cleaning. you can also just touch up the jack issue, or not. The jack would cover the issue anyway.
