Fake Pamelina USA Custom on 3bay?

Check out this auction:


It's ending very shortly and is getting up around $1400. What strikes me as odd is the guitar claims to be a 1991 model but has the AANJ. Am I totally wrong or was the AANJ not released yet in 1991?

I mean, the paintjob looks really nice and could possibly even have been done by Pamelina, but it seems to me like the guitar is a reproduction, not a genuine article.

That guitar is 100% totally legit.

The first UCGRs produced in 1990 all had the standard neck joint. By 1991 Ibanez started to produce more and more with the All Access Neck Joint (AANJ). By 1992 most UCGR guitars had the AANJ.

Yes, some additional reading of old Ibanez catalogs has shown me that all UCGR's came with the AANJ starting in 1991. Huh, learn something new every day

It just seems odd that it took much longer for the AANJ to migrate over to the Jem and standard RG guitars.

Speaking of that guitar...man do I wish I had the scratch to pick it up.
