Re: IS THIS A FAKE JEM/UV??... here (& only here) is where to ask & discuss

What do you guys think of this guitar: 152367539152 ?
To me it's pretty clear the guitar is refinished. Headstock decal instead of original logo. Color doesn't look like original DY. If you look close at pics in the listing you'll see how inaccurate is paint job done (headstock edges, trem cavity and lion's claw - whoever did the painting he didn't care much of these things).
What I can tell from pics - it's got original neck and neck plate. Everything else... hmm... - Edge trem and tuners are black instead of Cosmo Black, pickguard isn't original to 1989 model, some pickups were swapped for newer ones. And the last thing - the body: to me it looks like replacement. Sharp edges, lower and upper horns shape, neck pocket with massive amount of wood left around neck plate (I never saw a factory Jem body done this inaccurate in details). I asked the seller if the body has got "JEM777" factory stamp, yet no response. (Though I know this guy as a trustworthy seller, I bought my 77FP from him several years ago).

This said is $2,895.00 a fair price for the guitar?

What do you guys think of it?

Thank you. Just a couple questions, did you mean jem7vwh? I couldn't find a 7vhh.

Also, apparently the trem should say licensed under Floyd rose or something? This one just says ibanez
