Acrylic JEM

Just seen an acrylic JEM for sale on the 'bay.... Obviously not a real one, but does anyone know any more about them?

I'm not allowed to buy another guitar until next year (deal with the wife!), and an acrylic Ibanez is my next thought. But this one at £1.2k is much cheaper than the £4k for a JS, but this will probably be well gone.

Item 272646892912 if anyone is interested.

I have a JS Crystal planet. My second that I've had but i had to sell one once. It's way more fun to look at than it is to play.

Re: Acrylic JEM

The Crystal Planet is significantly heavier even than the JS10ths which are already heavy to begin with for JS guitar. On the 2001 G3 tour Joe Satriani played Flying in a Blue Dream on a Crystal Planet. I don't think it's a coincidence he only played that super heavy guitar for one song.
