1987 Ibanez Japan 540 540P Power Joe Satriani Electric Guitar w/OHSC RG Roadstar


$ 1,499.95 

Welcome, you are looking at a great piece. This is the 1987 Ibanez Japan 540P Electric Guitar. 25.5" scale length. 43mm nut width. 7 lbs 14 oz.
This is a very cool piece based on the rarity of the 540P with push/push tone pot alone.
As this is a one-owner piece, it makes it easy to identify differences between this guitar and others from the same period as the owner did not do any mods to the guitar.
Two of these differences are important:
The neck here is oil finished, or was raw wood and oiled from playing over the years, and doesn't appear to have had satin or gloss finish on it at any point in time.
The other thing is the 'JS' handwritten on the case.
The body is alder and is loaded with a trio of Ibanez USA pickups.
The humbucker is coil tapped by the push/push tone control.
The Edge bridge has the Ibanez Backstop installed enabling very stable tuning.
The neck here is bruuuutally thin- .65" 1st fret to .77" 12th fret depth with a flat C profile.
The oil finish provides a very fast feel.
This 540P is in good overall condition- there are the typical marks from age and use you expect on a 30 year old example.
The frets here are clean- set up with action of just over 3/32" at the 12th fret low E.
This is your chance to get your hands on a fantastic rare Ibanez Japan example for the price you want.
