The singer/other guitarist for my new band showed up at practice today with a "gift" for me. I've known him for a few years and he knows I like to get old guitars and fix them up and whatever.
It's an old late 80's/early 90's Ibanez S540 something. Original edge trem and what not. Plays fucking great! Frets are in excellent condition and the neck is straight as an arrow. It has that wickedly stupid thin old school Ibanez neck that I just love! And all the electronics work despite the condition.
I'm open to anything with this. My girlfriend does glass mosaic art and instantly she wanted to mosaic something on it. I'm thinking sure! Have at it! I'm gonna smooth out the body with a bit of sanding for her but in the mean time, I'm thinking about getting a tele or a star body for it from Warmoth or something else.
Looks like it's been spray painted multiple times. There's a bit of overspray on all the hardware and pickups but it comes off when I scrape it with my fingernails so that'll just take a bit of elbow grease to clean up.
Anyway... here it is!
I see a little yellow, green, and pink. Did a clown vomit all over it at one time?
