    Hey, do any of you have a pair of 1987 trem posts that I can get from you? Perhaps you sometime in the past upgraded those way long posts for the wizzy modern ones with the little set screw and have the old ones tucked away somewhere?

    Here is a side-by-side of a stripped 1987 540R RB and a clean 1987 540R BB. The finish on these is pretty thick don't you think?

    It's time for a 540R thread. Too long without one. I got a '87 redburst body that had some serious dings and checking. I want to refinish it black. Getting the original finish off is a task. I didn't try any chemicals because everything I could find to research the project said that nothing...

    Hey I'm needing a 540R body in black. Can also buy an entire guitar with a black body. Help me out y'all.

    I got a 540R neck with a maple fingerboard the other day. I like it. But what guitar gets it? I have a 540R HH arriving next week and I have a 540S already. Which should get the maple board? It would be no big deal to swap them around if the guitars had the same colored hardware. Zip, Zip, and...

    Hey, hey. I recently got an '87 Blue Burst 540R from jemsiter IBNZ_RG. It's great. Of all the 540R BB that's I've had this one is the most fun to play. The bodies of these guitars are typically thicker than the 540R from 1988 on. This one is too, but not by much. The last BB I bought to be a...

    I finally just accepted that I'm never going to put these back on my guitars. I work the truss too often. I've had the TRCs sitting on the edge of my work bench waiting their time to get put back on a headstock. Just over a year. So I painted black the wood inside the truss rod nut cavity and...

    When I was parting Ibbies the 540R was sacred and I would only keep or flip those. Except for a few basket cases like the one here. Here's the worst of it. It looked like a screw driver was used to I don't know what. The good side is that the neck off that guitar has followed me through...

    I have one guitar that has three pickups. HSH configuration. My other guitars are HH. The HSH bugs me often when i want to get the Neck and Bridge combination. I've read in the past about using a push-pull switch to add the bridge pup to whatever position the switch is in but never thought it...
