Is this JEM 77 GMC genuine??? (Pics inside) And which price?

Hi folks,

can you give me some tips how to figure out if its genuine or not? If possible without neck? Here are some pics:

Front:


Back:


Neck:



And what would you pay for it? I think the swirl looks nice but I know its subjective.

Thanks,

Kurt

looks like a legit Ibanez JEM77GMC swirl done by ATD. unless you have reasons to doubt it's authenticity, then pull the neck and see what the body says... glen

I havent seen it yet, just the pics. I dont think its a fake but I browsed this forum a little also about fakes....and so I decided to ask myself.

And what would you think is a realistic price? The guy wants 1850 EUR which is about 2200 $. Im not sure but I guess its ok, do you agree???

the more "like-new" the axe is, the more you will pay. it's a decent swirl (blotchy but good symmetry) but seems to have some mileage on it. i would pay $2200 myself, but then again in the USA these are easier to find w/ less hassle... glen

thats a very nice gmc and the price seems fine to me providing the condition is ok, i have seen gmc's on eb*y doin a hell of alot more than that.

and that one looks like its got a VERY nice rosewood board, from what i can tell from the pics anyhow
