fake JEM7V?

The front of headstock looks perfect. Bolt pattern on neck/body joint, trem cover and pickguard seems off. Vine pattern is off somewhat when compared with others, close but not exact. Trem is hard to adjust for low action and the trem arm has the 'screw on cap', doesn't seem appropriate for this trem. Tuners are stamped 'Ibanez'???

It has the infamous F0509338 serial number! The case does seem to be legit, Team J molded.

yes, fake, look at the edge of the neck joint, should be much smoother

I'm hoping there is an Ibanez 'expert' better yet an employee who will dub this definitely and authoritatively a fake...wish it were not but I want the truth!

So send a mail to Ibanez. I guess Jemsite is the next best thing and Jemsite says 'fake'. Got any decent pics of the front side of the body?
