Q's about used Custom "S" and 540R
Hey guys I need a little help here. My local music store has 2 used Ibanez guitars in stock. One is a 540R with blue burst finish and it has a "Custom Made" inlay on the fret board, the other is a "S" series custom that is a transparent red over a quilted maple top, also with a "Custom Made" inlay on the fret board. They both have the edge pro trem, and Ibanez USA pups btw. The little I know about Ibanez guitars tells me that these are earlier models, but I've never seen one, let alone two, with a "Custom Made" inlay. The shop is only asking $500 for each (individually) and I'm thinking about getting the custom "S". But I was wondering if someone here could tell me something about the "Custom Made" inlay. Are these made in USA, or some kind of custom shop? Also do you think the price is too high. The "S" played nice, as did the 540R, but they could use a set-up as there was a little buzzing on the upper end of the fret board.
