The 540PⅡ-HH (or 540PII-HH) is a Power series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 1988. It was part of the Roadstar Pro series and was made by FujiGen in Japan.

The 540PⅡ-HH features a basswood body bolted to a maple Wizard neck with a 24-fret bound rosewood fingerboard with sharktooth position markers. Components include two DiMarzio IBZ/USA humbucking pickups, an Edge double locking tremolo bridge and a small pickguard below the pickups.

The 540PⅡ models are based on a new "reverse RG style" body shape replacing the older Power series body shape introduced only one year earlier.

Multiple versions of the Power model were introduced in 1988 and 1989: a version with a single coil and humbucking pickup combination was issued as the 540PⅡ-SH. Both 540PⅡ models originally were for the Japanese and European market. Two 22-fret models without pickguard were introduced in 1989 as the 540PHH and 540PSH for the US market.

Although these guitars are not signature models, they were strongly associated with guitarist Alex Skolnick of Testament fame.

The 540PⅡ-HH was discontinued after 1991.
