They must have realized that the place that vacuum seals all those steaks also makes guitars - why not kill two birds with one stone!

lmao... giant handle cutout and no lion's claw. That headstock is so close to an Ibanez shape they could probably sue...

Ha-ha-ha! The tags for this thread!
"chibanez, costco, jem, steaks"
So random...
Will this affect Jem prices in any way folks? Maybe I should start a poll...

Re: Costco now selling JEM....

I am surprised that a company like CostCo would sell illegal fakes. I shop at Sams Club. Well my wife does when I let her out of the basement.

Re: Costco now selling JEM....

Costco will do anything for a buck. I would never buy a cheap pos like this. I'd be happier buying a beat up GRG for like $10 than buying this.

Ibanez has used other names for budget stuff and I would't be shocked if that was an Ibanez company. It's just too close on so many levels that it's a lawsuit otherwise. Gibson has their budget stuff at Costco.
