Today I finally paid off the rest of my payments on my guitar and got to take it home. Ive been in love with this thing for a few months now, and now its mine! According to the serial number it is a 1992 Ibanez S series, but it doesnt have a model number on it. The closest thing I can get to it is an S540. Can anyone help me on that?

This thing is one of the best playing guitars I have played. The action is so low its ridiculous, and the floyd isn't bad either. I blocked it so it only goes down, because I like the versatility of other tunings. It plays like butter, and the sound out of the IBZ USA F pickups are great. I wouldnt change a thing about this guitar except maybe its color. Anyway heres some porn!


Body. Its an aqua green color. Very 80's haha


Look how thin this thing is! its less than 1.5" at its fattest point. You can also kind of see how low the action is on this thing with that pic.


The headstock. no model name or anything. just the serial number on the back...


The 21st inlay is this. Its pretty cool.

Unreal buddy.
I got a rando Ibby used too; it's fucking awesome.
ended up being an 86 RG, made in the japanese factory fujiwuen or something that was famous for its workmanship.
Same with me, it's one of the best guitars I've ever played.

BTW how much? sick colour too.

Nice geetar. I think I would still prefer my Schecter but still pretty sweet. Custom is always a cool thing to brag about. gratz.

It's an S540 with a LoPro. Don't get all excited about the custom inlay though, all S540s had it then - made in Japan, assembled and tuned up in Penn or Cali, I guess that made it "custom" to Ibanez. Doesn't make it any less of a mass-produced run of the mill guitar.

Yeah, according to the serial number mine was made in Fujigen, in 1992. The best thing about this guitar is the fact that it only cost me $320. It plays better than most other shred guitars I have played for 3 times that amount.

And to the guy above me, thanks for the insight. I looked at some ibanez forums, and saw the same thing being said. I just didnt know why they have them called custom. But I still like the fact that it says it, even if its not true, haha.
