The 540SSM is an S series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 1992. It is produced in Japan by FujiGen.
The S series is distinguished by the sleek double cutaway body shape which is arched on the top and back resulting in a fairly light guitar with thin edges.
The 540SSM features a striped maple top and back on a mahogany body bolted to a maple Wizard neck with a 22-fret fingerboard with oval position markers. It uses IBZ/USA pickups made by DiMarzio with humbuckers mounted in pickup rings at the bridge and neck flanking a single-coil (which Ibanez describes as "vertical humbucking" pickup). Components include a Lo-Pro Edge double locking tremolo bridge with a locking nut and Gotoh tuning machines.
