For sale is a 1989/1990 Ibanez Jem 777DY - This guitar is the exact production model of Steve Vai's "Moon" guitar used on "The Moon and I" (May 2010)

The guitar is in very good condition for being 21 years old:
* Body is in excellent shape ... no dings or scratches.
* Maple Neck is in very good condition with little "worn" look on the maple board
* Disappearing "pyramid" inlays (24 fret)
* Pickups have faded to a light purple due to exposure to light
* One little ding on the headstock
* Ibanez Edge Tremolo stays in tune no matter what you do!
* Monkey-grip handle in body
* Desert yellow colour with pink, green and black accents
* Some minor pick swirls on the pick-guard.
* The "always present" Ibanez finish crack near the neck joint is also there (just like every other Ibanez on the planet)

If you can find one of these guitars they will cost you anywhere from $1500 USD to about $2500. Most you'll find have some dings on the body, I was lucky to find this one in the shape that it was in. There is only one available right now on eBay (USA) and that particular guitar happens to be located in the UK and they're asking almost $2600 and it also has the rosewood fret-board. (1650 GBP = ~$2600 USD)

For another comparison here is one that was available on the "Jemsite" for $1500 USD (site for players who play "Jem" guitars):

This is your chance to own a piece of history ... they no longer make the 777DY (stopped in '92 iirc).

Asking $1350.00 CAD and the guitar is available for viewing and test runs.
PM me with offers or any questions.

Those back from the days of the late 80's and early 90's will remember this guitar from Steve Vai or even perhaps "Harry Cody" from Shotgun Messiah amongst many other shredders that jumped on the Jem bandwagon.
