I've searched and searched, but I cannot find any hard evidence of Evo's age. I suspect 1992, but I want to be sure.

Could someone help me out?

Here you go, http://www.jemsite.com/jem/origin/index.htm there's some very cool stuff in there... Evo was one of the ten prototypes that Ibanez sent after the first two, so I think that means it would have been 1987.

Evo was made in 1993. Production of the JEM7VWH started in 1993.

Although, it may have been in development in 1992.


Its original neck was snapped in like 1998 I think, so its current neck is from around then.

It was one of 4 prototypes though, but they were all JEM7VWH's.

yeah, the VERY first Jems were made in 1987. . .and those were the JEM777LNG (Loch Ness Green - only 777 made. . each signed personally by Steve) the JEM777DY (Desert Yellow) and JEM777SK (Shocking Pink).


All had basswood bodies, and maple/maple necks and fretboards, Edge Tremolos, and DiMarzio PAF Pro pickups.
