Re: Is this too much for this guitar?
$900 might be a LITTLE bit high for this guitar, but there are some things you have to consider. It's old, but in very good shape. New, this guitar would've been in the $1200-1300 price range, if I'm remembering right. Even though the original pickups were the very desirable IBZ/USA pickups, to most non-Ibanez fanatic types the fact that it has Seymour Duncan replacement pickups would add cost/value to the guitar IMHO. It's an awesome guitar; the S540FM is probably my favorite of all S-Series guitars and if I had the money to spare I'd buy it right now.
After all is said and done, guitars are worth exactly what someone is willing to pay for them.
