NGD: 540SOL

Technically, I got it on Wednesday, but close enough. It's been played but not abused. It nicely feeds my addiction for natural/oil finished mahogany guitars. I also really dig the maple fingerboard and abalone inlays, so this one is really hitting on all cylinders for me. I'm thinking of putting some different pickups in it eventually (I've got a PAF Joe and Duncan Alt 8 on deck). Just going to play it for now though. Yes I know it's not Custom Made, but those oval abalones deserve a picture too.

Very sweet. Nice looking axes. I love the Sabres with the edge trems and Wiz necks.

Duuuuuuuude! I've never been fond of S series Ibbies, but that one is a beauty. I may just have to rethink my collection plans. If I ever come across a purple one, I may just snag it.

Re: NGD: 540SOL

Not pictured here is my yellow 1988 540-S (that was when they still called them sabres) - that is indeed the square heel neck joint. This natural one has the AANJ. If you look at Rich's site in the catalogs - it's shown in the 1993. So somewhere in between they switched to AANJ. Not sure when exactly though.
