FS - 89 540S, Saber, Red w/Grey Bobbins...rare!

The acquisition of another instrument forces the sale of this one...and it hurts because I love this thing, but I simply have too many and no additional cash to feed my habit.
Looking to get $500 shipped to lower 48 U.S. Includes Ibanez hardshell case.

This is an 89, Laser Red, HSS config with original edge and grey pickup bobbins.


more pics here:


The neck is fast and thin, and sounds terrific. The only issue is that there is some sort of residue around some of the frets that won't come off, not sure what it is. It is very hard to see, I tried to photograph it as best I could. The frets are large and there is a slight chance the guitar may have been refretted, but I don't think so. The 5 way switch is a little scratchy, but contact cleaner will fix that right up.

There are no neck pocket cracks, and no locking nut cracks, and virtually no dings on the body, just a small scuff on the neck at teh joint and a few scuffs near the trem cut out on the front. No Trem arm with this one, I am a few bars short and can't include one.

I am a 343 score on evil bay, with 100% feedback, no BS here. I will ship Fed Ex or USPS depending on your location. Guitar will be packed well.
