Just so I understand for the future, why do you say this is a fake?

Bridge is wrong for starters, that's the first thing most a lot of people will look at. A 2006 Jem7vwh will have an Edge Pro and that's no Edge Pro on the guitar you posted. Headstock shape is off, Ibanez logo is wrongly positioned (tick mark is to close to the D string tuning peg), 'Jem' logo on the headstock is in the wrong position too, I could go on but for future reference you should have a good look at this guide here on Jemsite on how to spot a fake:

Thanks gentlemen! Since this is a copy, what would you think it should sell for? No, I didn't buy it and don't plan to.

Did the price of the real JEM just go up by $1000?

Worth it's weight in Firewood. I'm not really up on Jem price rises in the USA I'm afraid so I can't help you there. Somebody from the USA will hopefully let you know.

This one might. Never seen an '87 number this high, not to mention the plate looks fake and is on backwards, and of course the whole black neck thing. Not sure if it's a complete fake, but definitely a hybrid.

Not a fake at all, DY body with PBK neck. You can tell it's early because it has the original volume knob position. Nothing wrong there.

Dear friends,

I wish to consult if this Jem 7V is fake, but I can not post links or pictures until my post count is 10.

Here is the link without the w w w

Thank You

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


Thank you very much for the answer, Diamond Dave.

It is only 250$ Even if it is a Chibanez, I am wondering if it is worth as a spare guitar (to keep at the house of my family in another province, so I can practice when I go there). Does any one has experience playing those Chinese fakes?

Edit: I have already found some answers:

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


hi guys, is this 7vwh fake? im pretty sure its not as everything looks legit but i dont know how good those copies are these days so... one of the reasons im asking is because ive never seen any other stamps on the back of the headstocks other than the serial stamp.

auction has ended but im in talks with the person
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Ibanez-JEM...vip=true&rt=nc

edit: im 80-90% sure its genuine but its better to be safe!

The photographs all check out as fine but as always you need to be sure that's what you are actually getting.
