Ibanez 540P Power Series with RG Series Neck Custom White Pre Owned
1988 Ibanez 540P White Custom Made In Japan with Original Hard Case
Commission Sale Shop Collection Only Pre Owned
This stunning Japanese Ibanez is a 1988 540p in White with a custom added neck (believed to be a late 80s or early 90s RG Series neck added by original owner) and original hard case.
It's fully set up with very good frets, fast neck, nice low action and in pretty good shape except for some dings on the body and a couple of marks on the back of the neck. See Ibanez description below :
The Power or P body is an offset double-cutaway shape with thin horns. It is reminiscent of theRGbody, but the sides are tilted toward the top, making the top smaller than the back.
The 540P features an alder body bolted to a maple Wizard neck with a 22-fret rosewood fretboard with dot position markers. Components include DiMarzio built IBZ/USA pickups with ahumbuckerat the bridge andsingle-coilsat the neck and middle positions, an Edgedouble locking tremolobridge with a locking nut and Gotoh tuning machines.
Instead of a typical 3-way or 5-way lever selector for the pickups, there is a mini-toggle to activate each pickup. In addition the bridge humbucker can be coil-tapped to get a single-coil tone. The 1988 model lacks a tone control.
The 540P is based on the first of two body shapes designed for the Power series. The 'reverse RG' styled Power body style was introduced in 1988 with the540PⅡ-HHand540PII-SH. The 540P was discontinued after 1988 in favor of these new models.
