Re: Jem 7VWH real or fake? Please help
I own a 7VWh and that one looks legit but you're right about the stamp on the back..... where's the Team J-Craft silver stamp?.... unless they changed it. Either it's a really really good fake or it's real. I can't tell it apart from mine.
Usually the monkey grip is a little weird, the bridge is all gold without the black parts, they just don't "look" right upon closer inspection. I'd say it's real but hopefully someone like Rich Harris, or anyone else in the know can chime in with a better answer than mine. Sorry I can't be of more help.
Just play it for a bit...... if it feels like a couple of grand then your good to go...... if it feels like a couple of hundred bucks, then you're in trouble.
