Jem prototype Acoustic

Any idea what type of wood is used for this guitar? Is this a concert series/jumbo body? Sorry if this is the incorrect section for this thread.

This glitch in the Matrix maybe resolved later.

Almost looks like a maple back...but I'm not sure. Probably a spruce top. Definitely a jumbo body, as opposed to a concert-sized body.

I don't think I've seen this pic before. Where is it from? I find it interesting that it has the older Vine inlay like older Ibanez's had (there's more "foliage" in the first fret than the standard Jem vine inlay).

sorry to whet everyone's appetite and then pull it down.

I need to check a couple of things with Ibanez.

I think it needs binding or something around the soundhole.

The soundhole should be formed to resemble the monkey grip.

...but I like the colour.

Could you imagine it with F-holes? Mmmmm.

Or f-holes in the style of the Ibanez swoosh...
