identifying this JEM...

today at my local music store i saw this used JEM, it was $450 dollars which seems like a steal for a JEM, sadly I didnt get to take a close look at it or play it. I want to figure out the model so i tried looking on this website and others but I can't find it!

It had a floral pattern, i've seen the JEM thats black with the floral pattern and the green inlay but this one wasnt black and it had a pink inlay. Does anyone know what this is? Is it a fake? I hope not =(

Re: identifying this JEM...

are you sure? how can i be positive? also my friend said he held it and looked at it, he said the neck was kinda thick and felt like a les paul neck, JEMs are supposed to have thin necks right?
