1988 Roots Beer??

Hey, need some advice there's an 1988 jem 7 RB I have in negotiations and I would like to know what things I should check for authenticity. Also it has seen some wear on the headstock and a couple of nicks and dings on the body. I've got him at 1436, but should I go lower? One more thing though it's overseas......help..

Re: 1988 Roots Beer??

Look for a picture of the neck plate at first to make sure its falls in the 1988 category and authentic JEM plate. Find a picture of an authentic RB and make comparisons of how everything lines up. Volume knob position, monkey grip position, headstock decal position, pickup fading in some cases, etc

As for dealing with overseas, I have no experience with that, other than to make sure you give payment through paypal or some other method that allows for dealing with fraud.

Price sounds great.
