JEM in a UVMC finish?

I was at the local guitar palace today, and one of the workers told me of a swirl JEM in the UVMC finish/colors. He said a guy in my town owned one! He also said they were rare though. I was a bit skeptical of this at first, but he showed me an Ibanez magazine (from '89 or the early '90s) that had a "3-color swirl" as a finish for the JEM777. I tried to find the magazine on Rich's site, but none of them showed it. The spec was out of one those tables that some of the Ibanez magazines organize the specs. Anyone ever hear of this? Or was I may just looking at the inlay color?

The MC colors were never available in a Jem, however, the Jem77PMC had a 3 color swirl, it's in the gallery.

Just to avoid confusion, the guitar mentioned above was a custom job.

I know it wasn't available...could this be a weird misprinted catalog? I'll check it out again when I go down there.
