NGD: 1990 S540 LTD

Last night UPS delivered this lovely guitar to my door from S-Man. An outstanding guitar and a great deal. It's my first "real" Wizard neck and my first MIJ Ibanez. Needless to say it's awesome. But enough talk, more porn:



In the case.


Slim is hot.


With a clean fretboard and new strings!


With the family. It may not be all sharp and pointy but it's still metal as ****.

Nice man! The early 90's and late 80's Ibanez guitars are the best in my opinion. Original Wizards are orgasmic! I always wanted an old Saber. Congrats!

I just got back from work (I teach guitar) and obviously I brought this guy with me.

I can't get over the neck. The difference between the original Wizard and the Wizard 2. It's insane. Most comfortable neck I've ever played. It's pretty much hands down the best guitar I've ever owned.

Awesome guitar! I'm glad you are enjoying it. They simply don't make them like that anymore. That said, not all guitars are created equally. That one is a particularly fine example and one of the less common colors. Congratz!!!

Thank you!

It sounds amazing. It's got tons of balls and lots of gain. It definately cuts through a mix. A little dirty but tons better than stock Ibanez pickups most people are used to now adays.

I can't get over the Edge Trem either. I've tuned it once when I put the new strings on and setup it. And I'm a trem abuser.
