Ibanez JEM777LNG sold with additional signed body?

Can anyone remember a JEM777LNG sold with an additional LNG body? The guitar was only signed by Steve Vai, the additional body was signed all over. IIRC the extra body was factory made to compensate for something, if it was relevant for that guitar, or if the seller by other ways got his hands on it, I don't know.

Does this ring any bells? Searching for signed LNG is, well, you know...

This must have been 10 years ago.

I remember. But, is this just a memory test?

Yes, you just won the Internet!

No, well, do you recall anything else about it? The reason for the extra body(bodies?) being made? How someone could get hold of one, where are they now?

Pics!?

It was defective and it got a replacement body. I don't remember the details, I do remember when it was being sold though. Normally they'd never let you keep the body but evidently he got away with it back then.

A ha! So it was the ruined body that was signed by several individuals? That would make sense.

Re: Ibanez JEM777LNG sold with additional signed body?

I remember that as well and not sure why but I think this 777LNG was originally given to Larry DiMarzio by Steve...... unless there's two LNGs with writing all over the body because I'm sure Larry has a LNG with writing all over it.

I found a DiMarzio ad on my hard drive so I uploaded it, not very clear but I think this is Larry's personal guitar.

Nice! That could be it. My memory might be playing tricks on me, I seem to remember there was a lot more scibbling on it. Also that it was the extra body that had all the scribble. Would be easy to swap for a photoshoot, of course.

There's a chance Larry gave the guitar away for charity and that the body was replaced to raise more money or something.
I remember seeing pics of the body on it's own with writing on it but that was such a long time ago I can't remember much.

I did some googling and stumbled upon a second LNG with more writing on it, here's the second one.

Still can't find the pics of the body on it's own as I remember it.
