The pickups seem funny but otherwise it looks real to me.

Single pickup looks very old for a jem with edge pro, although it looks real

Yeah, it's real, and yeah, the middle pickup fade looks very odd. I have a first year VWH and it hasn't faded like that.

Congrats on the RGT3020. I have one and it is top notch. Which one did you get, the violet one or a desert burst?

Here's mine

Re: Guys, need your help, does this jem look real?

Sometimes the VWH plastic isn't one uniform color. On my '98 the humbuckers were bright white and the single and knobs were more of a creme color. Annoying as hell, but that's the way it came from the factory. I would have thought they'd have gotten it straight by now, but that could be the original pickup and cover in there.
