Re: Fakespotting: another one...

i sent him an e-mail earlier too and he seemed freaked out cuz he didn't know. I told him to come over to jemsite.com and he could talk to us to find out what makes it fake but he said the site was rejecting his only e-mail address. Damn that sucks

He said the guy is going to issue him a full refund but he hasn't seen it yet

Re: Fakespotting: another one...

Is it actually possible for him not to pay if he shows that the item is not the one described in the auction?

The seller should be sued in my opinion.

Hints are gold knobs, gold bar, monkey grip looks funny, but the dead giveaway is the made in Korea on the back of the headstock.

Trem is not an Edge/Pro (that by itself blows this off the "real" list)
Serial number is a "C" and that's not an "F" and the MIK part
Monkey Grip appears to be a bit off from the front
Back of monkey grip doesn't have the vertical grooves, or at least not clearly
I'm not sure if 7VWH have AANJ, but that's for someone else to confirm
