china jem questions

first hi to all people here, i'm new and been reading this forums for a quite a while now so i decided to register.

In other thread i saw music shop that ships worldwide all sort of guitars . Guy told me on MSN they are real ibaznez just made in China.
Well, price is really really low, i cant blieve people would sell new JEM for $158.00USD . ( i payed my RG1550BK like 800$ at the time in my country ).

So , from this pictures and stuff, perhaps you guys with expirienced eye could come to some clues about this guitar, and perhaps explain me some main diferrences between China and Japan versions of ibanez... If i decide to get this JEM it would actually totally replace my RG 1550 because i'm not in good conditions with money atm

thanks and cheers all

EDIT: now i see theres pool about Ibanez korea/china etc that i missed i'll read it all , anyway perhaps someone could tell would this be actually better guitar than my RG ?

Re: china jem questions

First thing's first, THESE ARE NOT IBANEZES AT ALL. They're POS ripoffs made in China. Hell, the only Chinese mase one's are the GIOs and there are no signature Ibanez models made in China. For more info, see here: http://www.ibanezrules.com/fakes.htm.

Re: china jem questions

I reckon if you wait long enough, nearly everyone on this form will tell you that youre RG1550 is miles better than any chibanez.

Hell NO! No Chibanez is better than any RG no matter where the RG is made. AVOID them dude, seriously!

Is the guy you were speaking to on MSN the same guy/scumbag who runs the mymusia.com website?

Re: china jem questions

I thought so. Hopefully his dirty little ripoff shop will be shut down soon.
