Well that's awesome man! Looks like it was actually stripped then! I gotta go through that this spring or summer 😑. Not looking forward to removing that hard paint.

The guy should not have painted the neck pocket at all though, it can cause the neck to sit at an incorrect angle causing fret buzz. The paint in the pocket should be removed... Unless is plays perfect, at that point personally I don't know if I'd bother with removing the excess paint.

Re: Does this neck cavity look correct??

Thats not a legit body. Routing is ... wrong/bad, thats... not alder, that "dimarzio" is ABSOLUTELY fake, counterfeits have *terrible* plating on their screws and thats what Im seeing here, the holes arent drilled properly, the height adjustment screws are too big... and thats just what I can see from this one angle.

This has already been resolved in another thread. There was a picture shown of the neck pocket with the factory "JEM" labeling. It was verified as real by an ibanez vendor.

wasnt resolved at all, and Rich said to "check the neck pocket". This is 100000% not a legitimate body.

Rich was the one who suggested to ask the guy to take the neck off. We all saw the JEM inscription in the neck pocket.

And regardless he wound up buying it. You can see a few posts up in the thread we are messaging in... the picture of the neck pocket.showing the factory markings.

@bob493 , unless you’ve made the guitar in question from fake parts you’re only guessing, like everyone else here is guessing. But I’d wager unless you work at either Fujigen in Japan or Headstock here in the U.K. then the folks who think it’s real have almost certainly seen the inside of a JEM far more often than your average player or owner...

Not to be rude, but Im not "guessing". 1) thats not alder. that alone is enough. 2) the routings are incredibly sloppy. This is incumbent of a dull bit, something Fujigen would never let slide through. 3) the pickguard is CLEARLY wrong. Dont need to work at fujigen to see these things mate.

As well, Rich hasn't even mentioned anything about it yet. He simply stated "look at the neck pocket". Furthermore, if the people claiming "its real" cant see these issues, then I have to take their word with a grain of salt. Sorry, but that is what it is. At any rate, its not my money and I've said what I wanted to say. I hope Im wrong, but I really dont think I am.

Not to be rude, but, yeah, you ARE guessing, unless you want to throw up some evidence other than you don’t think it looks like alder...

I think there are a few people here taking wh you’ve said with a pinch of salt too...

But it’s not my money either so neither of us have too much to lose

no... no im not...

The differences are pretty obvious when pointed out, I've literally shown comparison pictures, and I've said why. Take it or leave it, I really dont care beyond this. If you guys cant/wont see it, thats fine, but telling someone to waste their money on whats AT BEST "sketchy" is kinda crap. The body IS fake, the pickguard IS fake, the stamp on the neck doesnt match at all, the stripes are way too thick, the pickups arent right, the fretboard isnt rosewood, combined with the fact that its REAL easy to grab an old used Edge, locking nut and some gotoh tuners off reverb leads me to be really suspicious about the whole thing.
