WTB: S540/540s or parts thereof
-Including at least the body, electronics, and heel plate/screws.
Preferred, but not necessary, in descending order of preference:
-Bridge included (this is bordering on a "must")
-Three toggle switches instead of a master pickup switch
-No neck pocket cracks
-Stock IBZUSA pickups (for curiosity and possibly for putting in other guitars; don't plan on leaving them in this one)
-White (even better, cream) finish
Chips and dings in the finish are completely acceptable as if the guitar isn't already white or cream, I'll repaint it such.
I live in southeast Texas but don't mind buying shipped.
I would hope to spend somewhere under $500 for the whole project, and I'm going to be looking for a maple fretboard RG550 neck (so PM me if you have one of those, even if you don't have an S540) and Dimarzio pickups (haven't yet quite decided which) too. The more of the "preferred" items are on the list, the higher I'll be willing to spend on this part of the project.
If you want to sell an entire S540 (as opposed to one without the neck, as I'd prefer), that's cool too.
