I think he wants to know the correct term for the 'vine' inlay on Jem necks...

Right. What is the correct terminology? I see it written both Tree & Vine.

Thank you in advance.

7VWH = 7(Vine)(White)
77VBK = 77(Vine)(Black)

Back in the 70's & early 80's when Ibanez was using it on the Bob Weir guitars it was known as the tree of life... at some point when they put it on a Jem it was reffered to as vine so both would tecnhically be correct... though Tree Of Life was first.

Ah...that would make sense. It's my understanding that "Tree of Life" is the term ibanez used to use back the the inlay was found on RG's. I'm pretty sure it's called the Vine now.
