Sometimes we run across guitars that just speak to us.

Much appreciated my friend! I absolutely love this thing. All it needed was a little elbow grease to get cleaned up.

Agreed!
Two different beasts.

Very nice. I like the abstract RG look and sharktooth inlays rule. How does the F3 sound compared to the F2?

Re: NGD: '89 540PSH-DY

Yeah, I've been after a DY from the start. I've seen one other for sale in the past few years and it was a fairly beat up player that sat on eBay for a long time before it finally sold. I got this from the guy in Arkansas who got it for a steal from a friend. He posted about it and several people tried to call and snag it out from under him. He didn't really bond with it so he PM'd me asking if I was interested. So the moral of the story is be cool to people on the forum and good stuff will come your way

Alex Skolnick would be proud, he may put some thick jazz strings on it and deny the model but deep down inside he would be proud....

Congrats! That was the one guitar I wanted more than my 750.....love it

I don't care if it's factory second. to me it's like fly back to the 89 and grab this one off the store.
very rare chance to get this one with this condition.

Sweet new axe - I wish Ibanez would do a run of them again, even if it were Indonesian!

Re: NGD: '89 540PSH-DY

The shadows are natural and were part of the pictures of the guitars. Basically, I took a picture of the background with no guitar there. Then, I zoomed it so that the magnification was the same I was using for the guitars. Then I cut out a 480x320 section of it and basically tiled it to make a 1920x1280 background. You have to flip the image a bunch of times to that all the edges line up, that's why the background appears to have a pattern to it.

Then I just took pictures of all the guitars individually against the same background. These are copied and pasted onto the background and each guitar is its own layer, so I can change any of them out without redoing the entire image.

The guitar images are on top of the background (obviously) and then I just erased away everything that isn't the guitar or the shadow. It just takes some careful use of the eraser tool to get good blending where the shadows are. I also had to make sure to take all the pictures in the same orientation so that the shadows are always going the same direction.

The shadows on the text is Photoshop, just the Drop Shadow function in the layer properties. Those are all their own layers as well, so I can do the picture with and without the text.
