I always wanted one of these when I saw Alex Skolnick playing that glorious solo in that "Souls of Black" music video.
I remember it clearly being the first solo I ever wanted to learn on guitar. Needless to say, I did not achieve that at the time.
Hopefully, some day soon. Haha.
But anyway, I came across a guy who had a 1989 Ibanez 540SLTD. I know Skolnick only had two humbuckers in his but this is the closest to it if I recall with the paint job. Because I don't think his was a production model? Unless someone has some info? The crazy thing is someone put a Dimarzio in it and sounds amazing! I love this guitar and weights a fairly good amount for a S-Series. I know it's made a Mahogany. Such a unique tone for Ibanez. I'm surprised this guitar is not more popular.
Anyway, hope you guys enjoy. My arm is continuing to get better and this guitar fits me very well.
God Bless you all.
