Question 1987 Ibanez Steve Vai JEM 777 LNG on the bay

I was looking at it and something seemed to me kind of fishy
1)No signature and number. just some attempt of a signature on the rear cover plate.(to my knowledge they were never signed on the cover plate)
2)No serial number on the neck plate?!? it seems to have been defaced!

what's your take on it guys? do you think is a fake? or perhaps a refinished DY?
let the detective work begin!!!

Most offshore LNG's were never signed on the body, just the cover.

looks authentic - its just that plate thats odd -why deface it? Unless of course it was stolen at some point in last 20 years....

I contacted the guy and he sent me theserial number (this is a guitar I would be interested in...) and it seems totally authentic to me, but you can never be 100% sure. Great guitar though, probably the best Jem IMO.

The neck plate just looks worn from being played to me, because you can also see that the board has been played. Looks authentic, even has the bridge cover

Theres nothing like the LG's, Awesome guitars
