Did my Jem not go through inspection?
Hey I own a 1991 one Ibanez Jem 777DY according to the serial number and freakishly bright yellow paint. I love it. I've owned it for about 5 years now and today I restrung it and set it up. I also took off the neck to check out the neck pocket to see if the finish cracks have gone through the wood, they didn't. But while the neck was off I noticed my neck and body were missing some stamps I see on most pictures on the internet. It has Jem 777 stamped on both neck and body but it is missing the red H stamp. Any idea what this means? Also my fretboard is super clean compared to a lot of the other ones I've seen. One person said there might be a think clear coat of paint on it. Did Ibanez do this? Or do you think a previous owner had it done? I've owned this thing for years and these questions never came up before. Any help you can give would be great.
