NGD Ibanez 540S-LPF

Here's something quite rare... a 1990 Ibanez 540S-LPF in Lipstick Red, I believe. The color varies between pinkish red and metallic orange depending on the lighting.

Supposedly these are some sort of FGM-prototypes made for the Japanese market. Pretty cool guitars, matching headstock and all. Everything is recessed for super low action; the neck, the pickup rings and the trem. In fact, the Edge is set so low that it has virtually no pull up range but I don't think it's meant to have any in this case.

Here's a quick pic

Very cool! Does this one have an AANJ?

Nah, but I don't mind not having it. I'm used to the old style neck joints. One of my first truly good guitars was a 1990 Radius.

This 540 is worth a look, definitely !
I love it

Does it have recessed PU rings ? (that's THE Gambale signature)

Yes, the pickup rings and the neck are recessed like on an FGM.

The interesting thing is, all the other red LPFs I have seen are from 1989. They have no "Custom made" inlay and they also have silver logos instead of black. I have no idea how many of these were made but it has to be a very low number.
