Is this JEM7V fake or real?

The serial number is F0801880 so I checked online that is was made in Japan in 2008.

But the tuners are Ibanez instead of Gotoh.

Please see attached pics.








I am planning to buy this in one day so a quick answer is most gratefully appreciated.

Thank You so much!

Just look at this one at Sweetwater. The differences are small (to the average person), but are apparent.
