Jem and Universe re-issues, what would you like Ibanez to do?

Just throwing this out there, given all the speculation about what Ibanez are up to regarding a 2020 Jem refresh...

If Ibanez asked you what Jem or Universe re-issue you wanted them to release (or you think they should release) in the future, what would it be?

For anyone who reads my posts it's pretty much a given that I would want a JEM77GMC and UV77MC, as close to original spec as possible.

But I wouldn't mind a re-issued 7PBK or 7RB, as long as they had the original super-thin wizard necks.

I'd be interested to hear what retired models people get sentimental about.

UVs: 777GR
JEMs: EAFX..... lol j/k, probably the FP or maybe the RB.

And any swirl from the 90's if DJ was doing them of course.

Also, wouldn't it be cool if they reissued the FP with the pyramid inlay fretboard? Anyone have that picture of that one? Somehow it really seems to work...

I think they should do a throw-back but a new version. Made in Japan so double down on the Japanese theme.

I'd like a new FP but with a new floral design. Use traditional Japanese paper cherry blossom design like these.

Possibly roasted maple neck with white vine? Or better still disappearing cherry blossom inlay.

Otherwise my next project is to buy an old 505 and make my own.
