Ibanez logo faded

Hey guys,
I recently picked up this amazing 91' Jem 777, the only flaw that it has is that the ibanez logo on the head stock is slightly faded, my question is: is it possible for the logo to fade on authentic Jem's?

Re: Ibanez logo faded

Welcome.

You'd have to define faded, the color is weaker or it's thinner? Old JEM logo's are basically paint on top of the clearcoat. You can polish them completely off. They can also get a fine whitish crusty surface that makes it look lighter. You'll see pink ones turned near orange.

I probably should have included the photo initially. As you can see the I and B are starting to rub out.

Yea that's not faded, it's very thin and about to disappear. The start of the swoosh is gone.

Awesome, thank you, are there any ways to prevent any more thinning?

They don't just disappear, that was rubbed off somehow. So don't do that.

This happened to me on my original jem lng. Sent it back to Ibanez twice, they never did get it right. Luckily, they don't do it like this anymore. You could have someone redo the logo under a clearcoat.
