Talking Yay, I finally won an auction for the first time in a few months. LOOK!!

edit:link no workey, it was on ****


I won a 1988 540 sabre.. Almost perfect with case. $306. Who wants to touch me? I said who wants to f***in' touch me!?!?

Ahh, I'm so happy. I've been jonesing for an edge trem since I sold my rg's for rent money.

I was dying. I had some serious Ibanez fever.

red, H S S IBZ/USA pickups

Re: Yay, I finally won an auction for the first time in a few months. LOOK!!

okay, I'm confused now. There is no headstock serial#. The neck serial indicates it was built in '88. The pickups lacking F#'s also indicates '88. However, '88 540 Sabres didn't have blade style switches on them. They had mini switches and a coil tap. Does anyon have an answer? What year is this guitar?

The '89 540's came with F1 and F2 pickups.

This is like a melding of both years I think.

That happens regularly... my 87' Radius has specs from 87 and the 88 models (like in your case, my Radius has the 5-way-switch instead of the 3 Mini-Switches Too).

Oh man, I foundout these came standard with back stops. I then looked at completed recent backstop auctions. Mine definitely won't have one. That's fine though, I wasn't excpecting one when I bid. It should be here in a couple of days. I'll tell you how it plays and sounds.
