Fake. Look at the monkey grip's routing at the back. It's not right. The Jem Jr decal at the headstock. The AANJ shape is wrong. The truss rod cover is wrong. The input jack cavity cover at the back is also wrong. And sea-foam green? Sea-foam green's for Billy Sheehan, or Strats. Not a Jem, bro.

i don't get it. if you're gonna be stupid enough to copy a style of guitar like a jem, at least make such noticeable things right?

Re: Hey guys, is this a fake or is it a great deal?

Does it, in fact, include a truss rod?!?

How straight is that neck?

Does it come with a SWIMMING POOL... pickup route?

Is it wired like a ceiling fan?

Is it made of balsa?

Inquiring minds want to know!

Remember kids, even if you know its fake and it looks "close enough", it's never worth the risk. What's more, it's against the law to even own it. Keep away!
