Show us your 540STN !!

Managed to pick this up a few months ago.



The guy I bought this from in Sydney ran it on eBay twice and it didn't sell so I got it at a reduced price - Sometimes I must be the only one crazy enough to buy the whackiest Ibanez guitars that appear ion eBay here in Sydney.

He told me a story that there are only 40 of these world wide and only 3 in Australia.

How many Jemsiters own one of these ?



Cheers, Buck.

Can believe it belonged to someone in Sydney.. Mine and my friends one were both imported direct by us from US sellers, so does that mean that there were 3 legitmately sold in Aus from new? or youd just heard that there were 3 here?

The story I got told was the guy I got this from bought it new in 1991/2. He alleged that Australis music only bought in 2 for retail sale. He was at a music show in Melbourne and it was on display. It was originally intended to be returned to the US after the show but it got scratched somewhere so they decided to offload it at a discount rather than freight a damaged guitar back around the world. I've searched all over this thing and I can't find where it's scratched though.

there was one on the bay about a year ago, also couldn't sell. It took a few tries but I believe that it sold. The one I speak of was located in the US.
