Help identify this Jem?

Now here's a challenge for you guys... Can anyone figure out what this jem is?

reverb.com/ca/item/6470508-super-modified-ibanaz-shredder-guitar-natural-satin-finish
(can't post links)

The only thing I've been able to figure out is that the bridge looks like an edge iii maybe? And it seems like the neck inlay is pearl.

Anyone can tell what the body and neck material is? Or the pickups?

Thanks in advance haha

The trem is a very poor counterfeit of the Edge.

You are aware there are 1000's of Chinese counterfeits?

If you're using a phone I suggest something larger, or at least look at close ups of real Edge3's

Well I can tell you the lion's claw (trem recess cavity) routing seems to have been done by an actual lion.

This looks like someone's project for a woodshop class in high school. It's not even close to a convincing fake. The routing is garbage, the trem is janky, and they haven't even bothered to match an existing JEM model.
