What is this radius model?

Is this an actual model, or is this some ones "Custom job" they created? It's been for sale for about 2-3 years now, not sure why they haven't lowered the price yet. Its obviously a 540R but the seller claims it to be a "real" ibanez.

Re: What is this radius model?

It's been on ebay for longer than that; maybe ten years by now. The owner doesn't know what it is. Here is some info. and there is some more info at http://www.ashbass.com/Ibanez/Guitars toward the bottom of the page.








^ CF84 has been listed on Ebay on and off for several years
Here it is below from a December, 2012 auction.




The picture above is the same as the one you posted, just rotated and cleaned up. Amazing what some little things can do to make something look better on ebay.

I could see someone shelling out a grand for it, being a "collectible", but it would DEFINITELY require the "right buyer". Guess theres a reason its been for sale for so long haha

Re: What is this radius model?

Well, it's beat up as well. The trem finish is worn, there's an extra hole where maybe another pot was installed, and it looks like there are extra mini-toggle switches (at least one) installed. So it's not in collector condition and sports one of the most uninspiring custom art jobs of the whole series (c'mon, 1980s album covers just pasted on?).

The art on some of those poster-guitars could maybe warrant the price of this one. But this one for me does nothing.

Thats a cool story. I have seent hat one on there forever and just thought it was someone's custom creation. I didn't know it had a story.

Still ugly but cool story.
