    I just picked this up. The serial number on the neck indicates it is a 1991, but it is a Wizard neck, so I presume it was swapped with an S540 of the same vintage, as the 91 R series had the Ultra neck. Does anyone know what the stamp in the neck pocket indicates? H&S 01R - 1H. I know H&S...

    Prestige, J-Custom and JEM all come with a Wizard / Super Wizard neck profile and a 430mm fretboard radius. Cheaper lines come with a slightly thicker Wizard variant and a 400mm radius (Premium currently with standard Wizard profile but 400mm radius). Most Ibanez RG/RGA/RGD/S players seem to...

    For all the Ibanez guru's..... Did Ibanez make a RoadStar, Radius, or JS model with a Mahogany body, Maple/Rosewood or Maple/Ebony Neck, AND an Edge Tremolo?

    Hello there, I'm looking for a nice and clean 22-fret Japanese Ibanez neck with no W-cracks or other issues that would fit onto my 1989 540S body. Post-1986 builds only, i.e. tilt-back with scarf joint. Maple board with oval inlays preferred (I know it's a long shot) but any configuration of...

    I can't stop playing this thing. Wanted one since 1990 and just got it today. I was 15 or 16 and saved up for an Ibanez R series after working as the cart guy at my local supermarket for a couple of months. The other guitarist in my band drove us to Sam Ash and they had no Radius'. I settled...

    An old Radius-style build: take 2 Those that have been around this forum a long time may vaguely remember the monstrosity I put together 8-10 years ago. It started as some kind of strange strat-like body I picked up in an auction. Nothing on it was standard -- the routing, the neck pocket...

    Hello fellow Ibaneezers, NGD! I just picked up really unusual Pro Radius, it looks like a 1987 model but has no sticker on the headstock. It has the three mini toggles, the beehive knobs with push/push tone pot and the IBZ/USA pickups but a chrome edge with backstop and the body weighs an...

    I searched all over this site for this info. Im sure it's been said before but I can't seem to find it. I own a 1990 777DY and I'm thinking of getting a reissue edge tremolo for it. Ibanez told me the radius of the reissue is 400MM / 16inch or 15.75. I just wanted to know if that's the same...

    Dimarzio made the original pickups in the 1987 and 1988 540 series of guitars (540R, 540S, 540P). They have only "IBZUSA" on them. In 89 and on, the pickups were still Dimarzio but were labeled "F1-4". Over many threads asking about the original pups versus the later ones we've found that the F...

    Brief & Accurate Description of gear/guitar: This is a 1990 Ibanez 540R (Radius, the predecessor to the eventual Joe Satriani guitar) in the Jewel Blue finish, MIJ with matching headstock which apparently means that this is a Japan-only release therefore rare in the US (HOWEVER I CANNOT VERIFY...
