I haven't seen them side by side but the JEM color changes depending on how much light. Here's one in direct sunlight that looks very bright even brighter than it did in person.

Re: JEM LNG 30th NGD!

LNG might be the hardest color to photograph accurately. DY is tough but LNG is way worse.

Sweet!

Do we know if they are limited edition, or will they be more or less regular production models available for e.g. complete 2017 at least?

I don't remember if it was on this thread, but somewhere Rich said they were limited. No public info yet about edition size.

Pic at post 18: Look at the certificate: They are a Limited Edition

(or the certificate has a wrong message)

DirkS, yes looks like that. Thanks.

And pickups, PAF Pro? Or something new?

Sugi or Fuji? The Volute and the 5 piece neck looks "incorrect" to my eyes for this guitar.

Agree! A slight neck warp and some hairline cracks by the nut bolts would be much more authentic!

I long for the days of a UV1000C. Molded plastic will never sit right with me. Was this just a didn't read the release date memo situation?

Looks phenomenal. Was toying with buying a JS2410, but having seen these pics I think my head has been turned. Looks too good to miss. Price will be around the same as the Jem77-FP2 here in the UK.

Yes would love to know pickups, specs. All of it.

Also would be curious of the neck plate joint is thinner than the 1987 original since they are not using the AANJ.

Congratulations!

Looks like a backstop found its way in there.
