Alex Skolnick 540 PII


If one word defines both Hard Rock and Heavy Metal, it’s power. Unfortunately, guitars intended for these powerful musical forms often lack substance--all flash, no function. So the 540P, as a serious, hard-biting guitar, did choose a right time to market.


The Ibanez Power series (P series) is a series of electric guitars produced by Hoshino Gakki, introduced in 1987. The first Power models were introduced as part of the Roadstar Pro series also including the Radius and Saber models.


Althrough the Power series was only in production for five years, two distinctive body shapes were created. The first one, mainly used for the 540P, was more alike its Radius and Saber siblings. In 1988, a new 'reverse style' shape was introduced for the 540PⅡ-HH and 540PⅡ-SH models. More reverse models were issued as the 540PHH and 540PSH in 1989.


Alex Skolnick 540 PII, one type in the Power series, was presented as a part of Roadstar Pro in 1988 with 2 Dimarzio IBZ/USA pickups, 24-fret Wizard neck and Edge tremolo.A new reverse style design substituted the initial Power series shape of 540PII-HH.Far more Power models had been produced in 1988 and 1989. 540 PII-SH is really a combination version of one single-coil pickups and one dual-coil pickups. The 2 540 PII styles had been merely marketed in Japan and Europe at the beginning. 


Tough, loud, fast. The power guitar is sculpted from select basswood with the lines of a sports car, to handle the demands of modern Rock guitar. High output pickups, wide, thin profile necks and the Ibanez Edge tremolo. Designed with one thing in mind---the Power of Rock. Distinctively styled, the Power guitar’s beveled sides add playing comfort as well as visual appeal.


The 540 PII is based on the first of two body shapes designed for the Power series. Built for high-energy Rock and Metal, the 540 PII features an extre wide neck and custom wound ultra hot pickups. With its radical reverse body style and headstock, no-frills controls and basswood body, the 540 PII is the obvious answer...whether you're into sophisticated tapping or unleashing the rawest, screaming Metal lead. The 540 PII was discontinued, and it's difficult to find in ebay.

Although these Ibanez 540 PII guitars were not signature models, they apparently had a strong relationship with Testament Fame’s guitarist Alex Skolnick -- American jazz and metal guitarist who heads the jazz band Alex Skolnick Trio and is the lead guitarist of the Bay Area thrash metal band Testament. He is considered one of the greatest guitarists of all time as well as one of the fastest guitarists in the world.
