FS: Ibanez 540S7--rare Saber 7 string with Lo-Pro Edge

FS: Ibanez 540S7 Saber 7-string with Lo-Pro Edge trem. One of only about 450 of these made in 1991, the only year they made them. Arched mahogany S-series body tapered at the edges, black DiMarzio Blaze II humbucker/single coil/single coil pickups, Cosmo Black hardware, and Lo-Pro Edge 7 trem. With trem bar and original hardshell Ibanez UV1000C case. Here's a pic.

In fair cosmetic condition. Trem and knobs have some pitting; trem and pickup poles show some rust. A dozen small dings and nicks in the clear coat, several dents and chips including around the trem cavity, and a large scratch through to the primer on the back. Grooves chiseled in the back of the single-coil pickup routes, to accommodate 7-string single coils with larger baseplates (this mod is invisible once pickups are installed). Here are tons of pics of these blemishes.

Guitar works perfectly and plays fantastic. Neck has that great broken-in feel, and the tone has a nice mahogany growl. You can hear this guitar on www.myspace.com/actualtime, used for all the dirty parts on the second track "out there."

$599 plus shipping by UPS Ground (US buyers preferred). Payment by Paypal only. Sorry, no trades. E-mail actualtime AT his.com or PM with any questions. Thanks.

Re: FS: Ibanez 540S7--rare Saber 7 string with Lo-Pro Edge

i'm not sure. the main reason i prefer buyers in the US is because i don't know of a reliable shipper for overseas. US Mail size limits are 4 inches shorter than the UV1000C case, and UPS uses foreign contractors overseas. if you have a recommendation for a good international shipping co., PM me and i could look into what they offer.

UPS also delivers in the Netherlands. (Once shipped an amp to Germany with UPS)

So I don't think that should be a problem.

UPS estimates $352 US to ship it to the Netherlands--the billable weight is 54 lbs because the dimensions are oversized. that's why i prefer to ship in the US.

If you're getting 52 pounds billable then your box size is WAY too big. Internation shipping cost is highly dependednt on size and just 1" thickness can be $30 or more.
