S Series Value?

Hey guys. I have a 1992 Ibanez S series I would like to get some ideas on the value of it. I am confused on whether it is the S540 or the 540S. It is black with H S H pickup configuration and says custom made on the 21 fret. It is near mint condition with the original case. I was thinking of sanding off the finish because I really liked the natural wood color of the guitar but I was told not to because it is collectable. Is this true and what is the approximate value for this? All help is appreciated. Thanks in advance!

Re: S Series Value?

Don't sand it if it's mint! There are plenty of beaters out there.

Does it have a square heel neck joint or AANJ?

Probably $400-500.

It's an AANJ. I took the back plate off and there was a small piece by the screw where the paint chipped off and I just about grabbed the sander right there because the bare mahogany looked so nice! I'm trying to find a beater to sand down because it's a great guitar but I can't find one.
