    I've got an '88 Ibanez 540S Saber with the original Ibanez hard shell case that I'm considering trading or selling. This guitar was assembled in the US from Japanese-made parts in '88 and comes in a beautiful "Lipstick Red" finish. This is one of the earliest Sabers, as you can tell by the...

    I'm trying to find out exactly what model Charvel this guitar is. I just saw it yesterday at my local guitar store and the owner has no idea what model it is, but he is selling it for $750. All he knows is that it was made in the 80's. Anybody recognize?

    For my second custom guitar I've decided to go with two humbuckers w/ a single coil in the middle, and coil split the humbuckers. I know there's two ways of going about this: the push-pull pots/knobs, and mini switches. I think I am going to go with mini switches because I find it a little...

    I've been an Ibanez player for years now and I'm starting to look for other brands now that I now what kind of specs to look for on a guitar.

    Sorry if this question has been asked already! Mine was a black Satellite Les Paul copy, bought in 1979 from a local tobacconists that also sold a range of cheap guitars. The body was a sort of plywood although you couldnt tell because of the thick black finish, the neck was a bolt on but...

It is black in color, the pickups have been changed to EMG's (not by me so no originals) with their spilittable hummer in the bridge activated by pulling up the volume knob. It has 3 mini switches to select the pickups and a...

    Hi, does anyone know if there is a manufacturer who builds push-pull pots that have less height than "usual"? I'd like to fit a push-pull in the tone-position of my Saber, but it's too large in height. It sticks out of the electronic cavity by about 5mm, so there's no way to fit the cover...
