NGD -540R inside !

Hi !
Today is a new 540-guitar-day for me !

here is a '90 540R with Tom Anderson pickups, coming from Greece
and after a quick cleaning and re-stringing :





The color is most like faded red but a little more glossy than the pics show.

she/it is sexy as hell, and I immediately loved to play it !
only a few little rusty spots and 3 little cracks of varnish, that are not really a problem.

and only for my pleasure,quickly recorded, please be indulgent, a piece from France :

haha !

and so, I decided to open the 540 Thread !

Re: NGD -540R inside !

I had my eye on that one. Did you get the seller to come down on the price at all? Or are those tom anderson pickups THAT good?

Glad its in a good owners hands

Re: NGD -540R inside !

thanks all

The Tom Anderson PUs (HN3 and SA(don't know what they are
exactely - asked the seller)) are very nice ones ! sound great
and are versatile
I think they are more for saturated sounds than clean, but I can't regret
the originals - have you listen to my sample ?

I cant read the site, so i got frustrated xD

750 just seems to a bit much, but if you love it, power to you man. I mostly am not a fan of the color, but a lot of these are hard to grasp in photos... My blue burst, hell you cant even tell, but in person it looks AMAZING

I did listen to the clip and have to agree that its sounds nicely saturated, but still has good string definition. I'd like to hear a clip with less/no effects.

Beautiful guitar as well. Until recently I've never even considered the 540's, but with all the NGD's lately I find myself SERIOUSLY considering getting one. I'm a big fan of the H-S-S combo and RG560/760's are getting very hard to find.

I actually paid it 480 euros that is USD663 (shipping included from Greece to France)

For me a 1985 to 1993 Ibanez, in a near mint shape, between 400 and 500 euros is a gooooood deal !

Re: NGD -540R inside !

Sorta nice pics (my humble opinion)

lots of headstock types : Universe, classic, RG series, Prestige, Proline, XL (6 and 7), and from behind, the RG2228





S series and JS Series are missing !

looks like dolphins going to jump over a hurdle !lol
