New dark purple JEM for 2007?

Sometime after the release of Real illusions, I saw Steve Vai on the cover of a Dutch guitar magazine, with a JEM that was sort of a dark purple. Truly stunning and cool! The neck had pearl dots in it. Does anyone know anything about this guitar? Is it perhaps a prototype for a new model to be released soon?

That wasn't a Jem, that was an RG. Has nothing to do with the new Jem.

Is there anything at all known about the next JEM that will come out? Any rumours?

It will probably have strings.

Doesn't anybody like surprises anymore?

That's hilarious!

I like surprises. It's just that I'm very curious.

I did see him on the cover of Guitarist magazine, with a blueish looking RG2550EX. I never saw that colour in production, though someone seems to own one on the Ibanez register.

That thing had some sort of flag on it (in some of the pics anyway). Australian IIRC.

This was probably the guitar he was holding, then. Too bad. A purple JEM would be very cool, imo.

It will likely be out of my price range so whatever. I've gotta jem and it works great.
