    I bought a used 1995 Ibby S540LTD a few years ago which plays great. I recently noticed the back of its neck is really yellow compared to a friend's newer S series. Is likely caused by sun damage? Or just age related? The previous owner didn't keep it in a case and had it up on his wall most...

    Guys, its really in the shape I say its in. I am the original owner. Believe it or not, its never been gigged. I'm just a hobby guitarist and when you look at this guitar, all doubts that it may have been beaten on will vanish. The finish is 99% perfect. I'd even say 99.5%. It sat relatively...

    Changing my S series from stock pickups to a X2N in the bridge and an EVO neck. Anyone have experience with this setup? Having a luthier do a refret with 6105's and do a full fret dress on it. Waiting to get a JEM, but I've got to say the 540 has to be my favorite guitar up to this point...

    AHHHH a golden age S540LTD. A 93 to be exact.. almost perfect in every way except for this stress crack in the neck joint. I know I already asked s-man this a while back, but Im wondering... everyone else ...would this prevent you from buying this guitar?

    I have a '91 S540 with the old IBZ pickups and I'm looking for advice. First off, I'm not really into the active pickup thing so passive it is. I want a bridge pickup that is hot and has some sustain and neck that is smooth but not too bassy. I play mostly classic rock but I like my sound to be...

In "good to very good condition" what would be a fair used value/price for this guitar, whether from sellers perspective or buyers perspective? and does...

    I was just wondering if a Original Floyd Rose Tremolo Assembly will fit perfectly to a Ibanez S540LTD with Lo-Pro Edge. I saw one but it's with 7 strings. Is the routing enough for the OFR? I don't really need to replace it now but I'm just thinking ahead or consulting ahead if you may.

    I have a couple of fenders and they use locking tuners and roller nuts. I'd like to do this on my S540LTD for fast string changes (do a lot of recording). Which locking tuners fit the S540LTD? The ebanol nut sounds like a good fit. Anyone do this already that can advise for this or against...
