Ibanez Jem 10th Anniversary. Are there Fakes?

I just was offered a 10th anniversary ibanez jem. I know there are fakes of a lot of the models; but google left me with no more information then I had.
Do fakes of this model exist? If so, What should I look for?

Thanks!
I apologise if this is in the wrong place.

Re: Ibanez Jem 10th Anniversary. Are there Fakes?

I've never seen one, but that's not to say they don't exist and I certainly don't spend my time trawling the depths of the internet looking so it's just my experience so far...

The main things to look out for would be as for any JEM, handle shape, headstock shape, different bridge units.

The other give away on the JEM10 is the engraved aluminium scratchplate with chrome coloured pickups and a unique serial number. I would imagine these would take more effort to duplicate well, so they would be the things I'd focus on.

of course.
there is one builder in my area that i know can duplicate anything.
so yes, the fakes for 10th does exist, but it would be built by order. not like chinese made mass production.

I remember the first time i opened my brand new JEM10th-guitarcase. There were a certain fragrance which i will never, ever forget. Yummie!!!
And sometimes its still a tiny sensation there, when i open the case after a couple weeks of resting in its case....

Goggled jem10th copy, and landed here, but i am not so sure. Pickguard seems a Little too mirrored to be a brushed alumina, but i might be wrong....
