NGD Ibanez Roadstar II Pro 540 (Near Minty w/ lotsa pics)

Last week I got in a Ibanez Roadstar II Pro 540 Power model in white in near mint condition. It has only a few dings on the backside. I think it is pretty rare for its shape. It has the Ibanez Backstop with the Backstop sticker on the Edge Bridge. It has IbzUSA pups. I bought this cause I just like the looks of it. It sounds great and plays very well. The tone is not a push/pull but just a push/push to split the bridge and the minis are on/off swtiches. I don't think I have seen a pot/switch like that one before but I like it.

However, I just canít get used to the super thin wizard neck so I donít know if I will keep it or not or not because I prefer Strat necks. It really is in good shape for a 87í geetar. Here are the pics and linky to more pics.

great score Cosmic! welcome to the 540Power collectors elite! never seen one with push/push to split the humb, they usually had a on/on/on mini switch for that. nice one! and please... do not pull the Backstop sticker!!! it's a nice touch!

I have that guitar in magenta. Mine doesn't have the backstop, just a regular Edge.

I also do not like the super thin Wizard necks, which sucks because I love Ibanez guitars. What I did with my 540P is take the neck off, sell it on Evil Bay, then I had cash to buy a nice neck with a thicker profile that I liked. You just have to decide if you want to keep this guitar as a collector and keep it all original, or if it's going to be a player, and then get yourself a more comfortable neck.
