Dates of manufacture:
This is one of the Ibanez Roadstar Pro series, like the more well known Sabre and Radius models.
It has an Ibanez Wizard neck (maple with no stripe down the back), rosewood fingerboard, an angled back headstock, locking nut and 22 frets. The body is probably basswood.
Pickups are marked IBZ-USA, and are single coils at the neck and middle with a humbucker at the bridge. Each pickup has an individual on and off switch. The humbucker has a three way switch that also allows a coil tapping.
The 1987 models had one volume and one tone control. The tone control was also a coil tap for the humbucker. There were three on-off switches: one for each pickup. In 1988 the tone control was dropped and the humbucker selector switch was made 3-way to allow coil tapping.
Another version the 540P-TC had a triple coil pickup at the bridge.
Hardware is in the cosmo-black finish, the tremolo is the original Ibanez Edge version.
Three colour options: dark gray (pictured above), violet pearl (blue) and magenda (red).
