Need help identifying possible S540....
Went into the local music shop today having not been in a few months. Ask to see new models. Get shown S670. Made in Indonesia. Feels like it. And then....
... out of the corner of my eye I spot another S guitar that has seen better days. I think this may be a bargain waiting to happen.
Neck is super thin one piece, bound rosewood sharktooth fingerboard, 22 frets with the 'custon made' inlay at the 21st fret. Square neck joint.
Headstock says made in Japan. Serial starts F1.... so 1991 model from FujiGen. The neck feels awesome and is in excellent nick.
Awesome I thinks. The original paint has gone and been replaced with an oil finish.
It has a HSH configuration with a USA F1 in the neck, middle missing and something else (possibly a dimarzio) in the bridge. It has a LoPro trem that has seen better days.
It also has those old 'dalek' style knobs, which I loved, though they need repair or replacing.
It is being sold on consignment for a deceased estate so they can't haggle on price too much so I want to know 2 things:
1) Have I found a S540LTD?
2) How much is it worth?
