It's one of those Chinese reeeeeeeally cheap copies which means that it is not an actual Ibanez which means it is a fraudulent sale. The seller may not know though.

You'd never find a mint Jem7VWH for $500 buy it now. (if you do, please let me know) And most jemmers will have better, close-up pictures as well.

Actually he just claims it to be a "White Ibanez guitar". (Is a chinese made copy a Ibanez guitar?)
But the back of the headstock says JEM 7V WH and including that pic is probably a try to convince byers its the real stuff.

Re: real or knock off??????

to an inexperienced buyer, this may look like a great deal. To the experienced eye...or one that's seen a couple thousand pics of real jems at least, it doesn't even come close.

Question PLEASE HELP: Ibanez JEM made in China???

Hi, I have the oppertunity to buy an Ibanez jem 7V quite cheap. The only problem is it's made in China. I didn't know that China made JEMs. My question to all you JEM enthusiasts is will it be any good, is there really any differance? I mean after all it's still an Ibanez JEM...... Isn't it??

Cheers in advance!

Re: PLEASE HELP: Ibanez JEM made in China???

The 7V is made in Japan...I'd say either this is a copy or it's one of those "333" models, neither of which is comparable to the 'real' thing.

Got pics?
