A new Jem announcement tomorrow?

Has anyone else seen or perhaps commented on this yet? Steve posted this both on this Instagram and personal website, with some custom painted white Jem 7V and the date 10/23/18, and no other information. There was speculation to it being in regards to a new Jem model in comment threads there, or maybe just a new album release? Anyone have any thoughts? Doubt it would be a new Jem model but, funny how that Jem design in the photo has never shown up before though...

If it is a new Jem and that's it.. Ugh. Cant begin to imagine what it would cost but it wont be cheap.

It won't be painted, it'll be a photo of that artwork under the clearcoat adding perceived value for very little cost. Quite like the chrome hardware though.

I heard from a usually reliable source that this teaser is NOT related to a new JEM announcement. Maybe Steve's dropping an album?

Either way, it will be something we have never seen or heard before which will be a nice change.

Re: A new Jem announcement tomorrow?

I think for sure its a new (musical) release, not sure about a new JEM model. No audio on the twitter clip though which is kinda strange (and also as i'm typing this it has 777 likes lol, NO ONE PRESS THAT BUTTON AGAIN!).

However if it were to be a new JEM model could it be a JEM77ART? Like how Satch did? Or perhaps a new FP, its definitely a 77 with the rear routing/ clear guard, though no fabric matched headstock so it doesn't completely add up to me...

My money is on this idea, Sir Leviathus If it is indeed a new Jem model ... most likely as you said, with original art by Steve.

Re: A new Jem announcement tomorrow?

To further speculate, maybe it could be an FP/ART combo where they had Steve paint on a big canvas then cut/pasted pieces on the front of JEMs? Who knows...

...well Rich probably does .

They're moving so fast, the camera can't capture an image of them.

Finally it is Dark Matter video-clip; There are several “new” guitars: Lukas, Dark Matter and the hand painted FP.

Re: A new Jem announcement tomorrow?

Yup, i was wrong on all accounts. On further inspection the painted one looks to be done the same way as his cherry blossom stratbanez's, maybe markered or watercolored? Doesn't appear to be fabric, also no pickguard which is a first for a JEM afaik. Could still be a JEM ART but seems more like a 1-off to me at this point.
