Is this a good price for a JEM 70v SFG?

Hi all, about to buy my first Jem! And think I've dropped on a bit of a bargain here on eBay. This guys had it for 4 months, barely played it, had it professionally set up, it looks mint to me and comes with the case and trem bar. He seemed to give the whole ibanez thing a try and realised hes a fender kinda guy at heart, it seems a steal at £700.

Did you look over the guitar really carefully yourself? Did you get to try it out? If you can, give it a try first then if everything seems to be in working order, BUY IT NOW

Back of the headstock. If it ends in C or D I'd avoid, but, your mileage may vary. Evidently they're selling 100's of these and nobody is starting threads on the board complaining about them, for some reason.

Thanks for the info, it would be my first jem and I'm just trying to kinda make sure it's ok and legit, £700 is still a lot of cash
