Chibanez warning?


Hi!

I just saw this on the swedish 3bay'ish site called "Blocket", and I thought that it couldnt be a real JEM... It looks pretty fake to me, but I dont know!?


http://www.blocket.se/vi/10902689.htm?ca=21_s


The guy has stated that it is a Real JEM, korean made, and that it's not a Copy at all!

What do you guy's think?

Fake trem, gold knobs, big monkey grip, JEMs are not made in Korea.

Re: Chibanez warning?


I think one of the best things about Chibanezes is when it's claimed that the guitars Korean-made. If target demographic for these frauds are those uneducated enough to believe that there's a non-Japanese 7V model, why lie about the country of origin? Only those informed enough to know better to steer clear of these altogether would be likely aware of the minutiae regarding Korean, Indonesian, and Chinese manufacturing (which models are made where, etc.).

Please report it. There's a link at the bottom of the page. I have done so already, but it's better if more people do the same.

And there are 8 bids- potentially 8 different bidders who completely ignored the "Jem Jr" decal on the headstock, the sketchy multi-lam neck, the trem, and the fact that it looks like the guy spent about 3 minutes writing up the description.

I reported this to eb*y, but in honestly, I kind of didn't want to. The frauds will stay on the market because they are enabled by the ignorant people who buy them. Whomever would pay over $800 for this POS pretty much deserves to be separated from their money.

That is THE most horrible looking fake Jem I've EVER seen.

That grip is a monstrosity, a true King Kong grip!

Not only did they pay over $800, the price ended at 1,176.01 (about 1,176 over the actual value). That's just a few hundred less than I paid for my 77fp 15th that I found in a local music store last year- apparently no one in these parts was hip to the fp.

Sad, sad, sad.

Re: Chibanez warning?


Yep. I guess it was reported too late for the auction to be pulled. I also wrote to the scumbag selling it, but no reply.

I don't suppose there is any way to contact the buyer?

Thought of that also. I went to the link and tried to look at the list of bidders but they're all hidden- I guess they're trying to prevent folks from sending false "second chance" offers to the other bidders. I'd score them a +1 for prevention of fraud after the sale but a -1176.01 for not getting to the bidders earlier!

Re: Chibanez warning?


It sold for over $1100? I'm sure that e-bay also had quite a few of us reporting on this auction too and they did nothing even though they had a few hours.

On the other hand, my girlfriend had her account frozen within MINUTES of listing an authentic Louis Vuitton bag because they admitted that they resort to drastic measures to stem the sales of fakes- even if it means arbitrarily cancelling auctions for the real thing. What's the difference? Fashion accessory knockoffs get more press. If celebrities carried around guitars, maybe e-bay would really care.

Either that, or we need to embrace the possibility of the JEM "LV"-777 with hand-stitched leather on the monkey-grip, grained cowhide locking strap with polished brass appointments, Louis Vuitton little logos all over and "Louis Vuitton" inset at the 24th fret. The bags I saw cost more than my guitar!
