Re: used Jem true or fake

Usual suspects :

- Headstock logo swoosh doesn't go right to the tip of the headstock
- Ibanez logo wrong
- Headstock shape wrong
- Neck joint screws in the wrong pattern
- Monkey Grip too big / in the wrong place / not routed correctly on back of guitar
- Rear covers not recessed into the body woo
- Pickups wrong (solid polepieces instead of socket head setscrews)
- Bridge wrong (for any number of reasons - there have only been a few legitimate bridge designs, check them for comparison)

If in doubt, post pics (or links to pics) and you'll get a definitive answer very quickly.
