Help me identify this USCG

I know that there are a lot of people who ask this, but I can't find this graphic anywhere. I have looked in Rich's catalogs, Ibanez Register, and Jemsite but I can't find it.

Here's what I know about it:

It is signed "Pamelina-c89"
Edge trem
Single EMG-81 in the bridge
24 fret bound neck
Silver Ibanez USA Custom logo
Block style neck joint

Pics are here: in the USCG folder.

Hmmm...that's an interesting one! I thought I'd seen most of the USCGs, but that one is new to me. Seeing that it's dated '89, it's definitely an early one. I guess it'd qualify as a "pre-production" model from what I can tell. Not my cup o' tea, but definitely different!

Write Pamelina herself and ask her ( She just identified one for me I'd never seen before. I sent her a description and she wrote me back with what she remembered about the artwork, including the name of it (mine was "Tie Die"). She's pretty nice, but pretty busy. It may take her a while to respond. She's doing some custom work for Fender now.

She said she was doing about 30-50 guitars a month for Ibanez back in the USA Custom days. I got the impression that she did a number of one-off or low number pieces in addition to the catalog art.
