Re: Jem 777VBK Jem logo
I ve seen all the catalogs and there is a lot of inconsistency referring to the Ibanez decal. I have arrived to the conclusion that there are no two but THREE decals (see the 89 catalog):
1_ An small one (see the LNG that Steve holds on the 87 catalog, the SK of the 89 catalog or the DY of the later catalogs).
2_ A big one like the one that your VBK has (see the 89 catalog VBK and PBK)
3_ A medium one as the Takin a Ride VBK's and GMC (see the Rb and vdy of the 89 catalog)
Although the MEDIUM one is the most used, there are models that show different sized decals on the catalogs (for example in the 87 catalog tha LNG that is holding Steve has a small one, but in the pic where the three neons are together all of them show the medium sized one). There are FP's and BSB that show the small one in the catalog but were shipped with the medium ones (at least mines) or VDY with the medium one in one cattalog and the big one on another. That inconsistency affects the UV's too (there are PWH with the small one in the catalog but mine has de medium one, there are BK with the big one and so on...).
To sum up: no rule can be applied to the Ibanez decal in terms of model or year of manufacture at least attending the Ibanez catalog.
Maybe some gurus can enlighten us about that...
