s540...A good choice?

Hi everybody.
I'm searching for a good ibanez guitar for a good price. I've found a second hand s540 FM Custom for 400 euros. I don't really know the price of a new s540, but it seems nice. How's the bridge and the sound?

Here are the photos:

Re: s540...A good choice?

s540 is very nice guitar.

Nice slim and comfortable body. Lo Pro Edge tremelo is one of the best. Mahogany body so it still sounds nice and thick.

For regular 540S the going rate is about 200-400 Euro. This one being FM model and in very good nick, 400 Euro is fair price.

Go buy it.

I had a Gambale FGM100 and still have a Prestige S2540. These guitars are great for smaller handed players. Insane thin body, lightweight and fast as lightning necks. Great guitars. You won't be disappointed.

nice looking guitar, and very good hardware, i have that same locking nut, tuners and floyd, and theyre the best, maybe the ibanez/usa pickups arent the best but you can change these.
i would buy it :P

Yes, I think it's a good deal. Tomorrow I'll test this guitar and buy it if it's ok.
And then... I'm thinking about some dimarzio evolution. What's your opinion?
