Re: My "new" to me S-540FMTP

Thanks guys. The $425 included shipping.

List Price was $1449.99 in 1997

Lo Pro
Wizard I, Bound neck
Japan made...Prestige level, before prestige.

Crappy QM pickups....why???

Somehow... I think it's going to wind up having...

Air Norton

Blue velvet

Tone zone


Just like the S series J Customs of the same year.

$425 shipped? Good score. I dig the color, too. Actually, I like the QM pickups.

Very nice! I think it would look great with cream and black pups.

Re: My "new" to me S-540FMTP

nice s540ltd!!! i love those. $425 is a steal for those. they still fetch around $500-800 on the used market. i love the green ones with gold hardware, though. for that price, i wouldnt sweat it. the lo-pro with the aanj...mini ovals...killer. those quantums would have to go, but oem pickups always go by the wayside with me. awesome score!!!

Where are the S series made? I've seen some nice ones, but not sure if they are MIJ or not.

Nice score and congrats. The older S 540s are my favorite ones, those are made in Japan.

ditto. the last s i would buy would be the 2002 s1520. the bubinga is super sweet. alas, i have bought a crapload of guitars in the last few months, 2 more on the list to get. the s will have to wait.
