Does anyone know if this is a real Jem 77fp pattern?

I am looking to trade some stuff for a Jem 77fp, but I'm skeptical if this is a real one. I don't know much about the floral patterns, and I haven't seen one quite like this. Any input would be appreciated.

I wonder how people keep faking these.. he wanted to trade my Epi. Wylde bullseye + $600. Said guitar has evolution pups and that he has the paperwork for the guitar.. he also said he just got a Jem7v. I think I'm gonna try trading for that (if it's real..)

That's a typical Chibanez! Even though these boneheaded counterfeiters have been booted from the Evil Bay, they still flourish on sites like IOffer. If this dude has a 7V coming in, I'd bet my left you-know-what that it's a bootleg as well. Ask him for the serial number! Most of these counterfeits share about 7 serials numbers, so they're easy to spot that way too.

Re: Does anyone know if this is a real Jem 77fp pattern?

I e-mailed him and he said he couldn't trade the Jem7v because it was a gift from his wife and she'll kill him. I asked him for the S/N and some more pics, backside, close up, etc. He said he'll send them when he gets back from Boston on Monday. I'm kinda bummin cuz it's a pretty cool pattern. He claims to have paperwork on the Jem77fp. I wonder if this guy doesn't know if it's fake or not. He has been quite good about e-mailing, etc. Does anyone think that it may be worth trading an Epi. Zakk Wylde Bullseye + $600 even if it is fake? Assuming that it really does have Dimarzio's and the Edge trem.. (Gotta ask)

Don't trade anything worth more than half a sandwich for that piece of crap. Absolutely don't trade a guitar or cash for it.
