Was JEM ever offered with maple neck and black tree of life????

If so, I have a question.

I'm building a custom JEM and I've got the maple neck and tree of life inlays. Of course, the corners and such are a bit more rounded because of the cutting tool used to cut the inlays in the neck. On a real JEM, what color epoxy did they use to fill in the gaps that occur between the inlays and the neck? Is it black (well, if such a neck exists), is it clear, tinted, etc.

Thanks in advance.

Only the BFP had maple + vine, and they used clear. You can see some pics in this thread: http://www.jemsite.com/forums/f15/fp...ase-68968.html

Thanks. That helps. Looks like a clear. I'll have to shoot for a little bit better color match then.
