Re: NGD! - Ibanez 540R Jewel Blue 1989
Hell yes *hip thrust*. I'd like to have a Radius in my collection.
Nah, the trem is an Edge, you can tell by the string lock bolts which go through the 'whale tail'.
Not sure what they cost new, but these days they're appreciating in value. Wish Ibanez would reissue them, like a Genesis type version...
As for the 'twingy' sound on the upper frets of the high E, I had this issue with my old RG, I never quite figured it out. Not the pups, and I don't think it was the frets because I swapped a neck and made no difference; my other theory was the dissonant resonance between the neck and the body was somehow cancelling out the fundamental overtones.
