Fantastic quality

The guitar they said could not be built successfully! A guitar so thin would surely have no depth and tone they said, but on release they had to pick their jaws up of the ground. This was Ibanez at one of its most innovative eras the 540S with its ultra thin body hugging profile is so light and comfortable to play and packed with what most Ibanez collectors/players think is “The best” combination of pick-ups ever produced. The U.S.A made F and C series pick-ups are truly amazing, giving a wide range of sounds and tones. The 540S’s F and C series were sadly only produced for a few years (by the mid 90’s MOST guitar companies were cutting corners/$ due to low demand and a change in music fashion). These guitars with their Honduras Mahogany body’s and pick-up combination focused on Bass, Treble and Mid-Range frequencies yet, clear warm tones you can go from Metal to Jazz at a flick of the switch and it showed with the versatility of the endorsees such as, Testament’s Alex Skolnik or Scott Henderson, Jennifer Batten, Frank Gambale etc. The 540S Importstrings have is an all original 1989 model in fantastic condition which, came with the HQ low-Pro tremlo a unique full floating tremlo with string-thru design and magnum locking tuners. This colour variation was only available for the Japanese market. When LOUD AND LIVE the 540S really shows its colours, you don’t just hear it, you feel it. This is one of Ibanez’s best moments!
