Pedro Cruz Custom JEM777DY employee guitar. - As with the JS5 Rainforest proto above also painted by Pedro, Pedro was an artist Ibanez used for alot of their custom graphics work. This is a DY body that was serial number 881926 [as written in the pocket] either sample painted or custom painted on request. All the yellow is the original DY, and the graphic is in the rest of the 777 colors, pink, LNG, black, with the Yellow it's UVMC colors. Painted in a lizard and spider motif the pink and black are airbrushed with brushed pinstriped "LNG" outlines, with a little LNG airbrushed in fills. However the circumstances of a DY body being painted by Pedro, afterward it shows 100% the signs of an employee guitar. The complete mismatch of parts, black tuners, rest of the hardware cosmo except fo  the pads and string retainer painted black, thru body pots pickguard mounted so the knobs are 1/4" off the guard, the V7/S7/V2 pickup set, this is 100% an employee guitar put together with parts available to purchase over the build time. The neck is a standard WALRJ-T24 Wizard Angled Locking Rosewood Jumbo Teeth 24 fret, but he chose a nice one.  It's virtually near mint as refinished. There's a 3mm fog spot in a 2mm finish crack on the top, and some scratching on the bottom side, There are 2 chips at the end of the treble side neck pocket but the bare wood is cleared over so they are 99.9% the reason this DY body was available as a reject. There are several areas of clearcoat pimples and small blems from the original spray. There is play scratching on the pickguard and lots of pimpling to the bass side of the trem, but there is no fretwear, or any blemished to the neck at all. Neck joint crack on the treble side. In a literal half baked case the entire front bottom edge fully melt distorted, but from the top it looks pretty good, and does have all it's working latches and feet! Fred's CUSTOM SHIT - PEDRO CRUZ identification tape next to the handle. IMO an employee asked Pedro to paint a UVMC palette spider and lizard themed graphic on a second 777DY body he had scored, Pedro delivered a painted and cleared body, and the employee finished it off with sourced parts over time.**$1500**
