The 540P-TC is a Power series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 1988. It was part of the Roadstar Pro series and was also referred to as the 540PTC. In Japan it was marketed as the 540P30.
The 540P-TC features an alder body bolted to a maple Wizard neck with a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard with dot position markers. Components include a DiMarzio built "triple coil" IBZ/USA pickup, an Edge double locking tremolo bridge with a locking nut and Gotoh tuning machines.
The unusual triple coil pickup is basically a single coil and humbucking pickup put together in the bridge position. Toggle switches offer the ability to activate either or both sections and to coil-tap the humbucker.
The 540P-TC 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 the 540PⅡ-HH and 540PII-SH. The 540P was discontinued after 1989 in favor of these new models.
