Fake....fishy?

Is it just me, or is this an ad for a fake jem 7vwh? Some pics are apparently of the real thing, but some of the photos are NOT the real deal. Mix n match to deceive? Or is this guitar just modified with Chinese Jem looking parts?

Hello,

As far as I can see on the pictures, that's a real Jem. It has a little customizing.

Regards,

JP

Yeah, I guess the gold knobs and truss rod cover are the parts that really struck me as odd. Almost like,,,,,if this is real, why make it look just like the fakes.

It looked legit til I saw the nut. I can't tell in the crappy pics, but the nut looks like one of those crappy adjustable height nuts on the Chibanez....... everything else looks good, although I don't remember the volute having those hard edges. Isn't it usually more rounded/contoured on the edges??

It looks right to me. The nut in the pictures doesn't look like the chibanez nut (to me at least).
