Re: Ibanez JEM fakes???

And yes some of the copies look authentic. There are however always some tell tale signs, see above.

yea, paint can do wonders cant it?

here is whats wrong with it.

body shape
pickguard
trem
monkey grip
headstock
tuner placement
tuners
TJC logo
(not 100%sure about this but) the nut is bolted on wrong
fretboard, inlays and scalloping look like crap
AANJ is wrong (though closer than most)
Neck and neck pocket dont match up
And look at the specs. they are HORRIBLY wrong.


why can't these guys even get close? i mean honestly, how hard is it? most of the guys can build exact replicas with nothing but a router and a drill but these guys have a full factory and cant even get close? and they cant simply put the specs on their site? honestly, how hard is this?

You should see the EVH/Peavey Wolfgangs on sites like Tradetang. They are so far off it's comical.

Are all ways to create gray areas in copy rite infringments. Alot Gray areas allow for costly court battles.
