DO YOU THINK THIS IS A FAKE JEM

Found this guitar on a popular auction site and wondered about its authenticity. It is listed as a Jem 7V, without case and he will not give me any of the serial number as he thinks this is a bit dodgy. His is unable to send any close ups (camera problems) but is happy for me to go and view the guitar.

I am quite sure as a previous owner of a 2006 Jem 7V that i can tell if it is real or not, but can't tell from the picture. The Jem is a good way away, so dont want to risk the travel costs if this is an obvious copy.


Grateful for you experts out there to give me your opinion.

Re: DO YOU THINK THIS IS A FAKE JEM

Hard to tell
+ Trem seems to be original
+ The seller has ~ 570 positive feedback
+ local pickup

- most of the feedback is by cheap articles (1-10)
- not original knobs

Your choice

...btw on the same site, there's a Jem for less money expiring soon

Thanks for your thoughts, the account holder is selling for someone else which is a bit suspicious !
