NGD - s540 ltd

Bought this back in the summer but never got around to posting a NGD. It's an '89 model that I picked up off CL here for $325....seemed like too good a deal to pass up.

I've always wanted a S series guitar and I've also always wanted an Ibby with the shark tooth inlays cuz I love those - so I was able to get both with this! There's a small crack behind the locking nut but it was repaired professionally and I had it looked at by a luthier here and he said it looked fine.

This guitar plays really nice and it came with a SD JB in the bridge, which is still my all time fave bridge HB pup so all in all I was pretty happy with this deal for $325.

Sweet deal! You even got the beehive knobs! The person you bought that from left some money on the table.

Re: NGD - s540 ltd

Great score. That's a killer guitar. The S540LTD's are one of the
coolest S Series ever made.
