Old JEM question

Stumbled onto this ad and was wondering about the black JEM with gorilla grip, pink pickups and dot inlays. What's the story with it? Prototype/never made it to production?

Re: Old JEM question

Looks like a Jem 7P from 1990, but with pink pups. The lack of pyramid inlays makes it look like a Rootbeer Jem--the lighting may be making it look black. Either way, it's a beauty!

Umm, 7p's have white pickups and pyramid inlays. Any other guesses.

Re: Old JEM question

With such ambiguity in this ad it's easy to see why this ad campaign did not continue.

Not really a ninja edit--more of a, "Wait a minute--let's look at the Rootbeer", had the edit box open, took a few minutes to get my opinion in, took a leak, came back and clicked SAVE.
