STRANGE S !

Please, look at that : 230276593568

the seller says it's a S540 but you can see a non-AANJ neck with the "Custom Made" inlay at the 22th fret !!!!

and a piece of binding is missing at the bottom of the fingerboard !

what do you think about that ?
Is it a customized one or a real (unknown for me) model ?

thanks

Re: STRANGE S !

Nothing strange about it. It is an S540LTD. The finish, or lack of, maybe somewhat rare, but that's it.

Re: STRANGE S !

Yeah, my brain said 'wrong' when it first saw it. There doesn't appear to be binding on the bottom, so maybe it's a 24 fret neck cut to fit a 22 fret and the person wanted to keep the 24th fret inlay? According to the description he bought it used, so a previous owner may have done it.

Then again the description states that the inlay is on the 21st fret. Also i don't know if there usually is binding on the bottom of the neck either.

Weird!

Re: STRANGE S !

It appears to be a 24 fret neck cut down to a 22 fret neck: vraiment étrange.
