Hi
I have a Ibanez S540P
I am hoping to get a valuation on have no idea what it is worth
Picked it up about 15 years ago
Its serial is 801267 believed mid late 80's



It is dark grey in color like a dark gunmetal grey and I can honestly say it is in perfect unmarked condition

Spent most of it's life in a case
In the 15 years I have owned it only played it a couple of times
Had a full professional set up about 10 years ago can has been sat in it's case ever since

I have links to specs and photo's which I am unable to post as new user of site
Not sure if I can PM if anyone wants to look


If anyone has any idea's on it's value please let me know

Im going to ASSume you mean s540pro? Theres and s540 and a 540p which are two completely different guitars.

anywho, s540pro= 1988 s540 = 250-500 given condition. I've seen some in good condition hit 600+, if yours is as minty as you state, thats possible.\

heres HIS guitar gents, love the color :p



I see your guitar has a replaced switch, some corrosion on the edge, and some fret wear, little bit. Looks "excellent" vs "mint" to be honest. Not a huge deal on a guitar that old though.

Update this is an 540P not a S540P as previously stated
Have confirmed date from serial number as 1988
Switches are original as link above to specs have a look
No rust on the edge no sign of fret wear ( Where are you seeing this ? )

Check out the backstop was this fitted only to the 540P's ??

I don't se any corrosion, but all of the pictured frets look a little flat--could use a good recrowning...

Lovin that triple pickup
As i understand it an 540P has an enlarged if thats the word bottom horn
Where as the 540P is more traditional shaped

Looking at the title of the specs link could the correct model be
Roadstar Pro 540P Power
Or is it an early 540P before shape changed to that with an enlarged bottom horn

Sorry if I am bugging
Only started as a casual enquiry turned a lot deeper now

Would be good to know exactly what this Ibanez is

excuse us, when we think of a 540p we usually think of the "upside down" guitar



but it does look like you have a different bodied 540p that I actually like a lot better.

Both the guitar in question here and the "Skolnick" model are 540P. Standard shape up to and including 1988, and "Skolnick" from 1989 - IIRC.

I've had two '88 540Ps, both in magenta. Great guitars. No idea about value, but the guitar looks to be in very good condition. :)
