Need help identifying this JEM model

Was given this guitar and after searching the web, have come to the conclusion that it is a bastardized six string UV777BK, probably altered by a user along the way. It has no serial or model number on the neck, I've taken the neck off and nothing underneath either. It has:

Abalone(?) disappearing pyramid fret marker inlays;
a mirror pickguard;
Vai's "Light without Heat" pyramid logo below the bridge;
plus full body, neck, and head binding

Has lo-TRS trem, and you can see that the pick guard has been hacked to fit around it. Pics at https ://drive.google.com/folderview?id=0B5PwEQMdVU7YeVNwalJiWVpoRTA&usp=sharing

Re: Need help identifying this JEM model

I'd say it's probably a fake Jem. The way the neck joins the heel doesn't look right and the pickguard is off. It's more rounded not sharp like a Jem or even rg.

Re: Need help identifying this JEM model

Based on your comment and after reading the Chibanez page, I'm inclined to agree. At least it was free :-)
