Re: JEMs used in non-traditional JEM fashion
My mom once saw a JEM look alike at a pop thing when she was traveling, she sent it to me and was so excited she recognized a JEM until I told her it was fake because of the "bridge, monkey grip shape, pickup placement, pickguard shape, color scheme, and bad inlay"
It probably wasn't even plugged in. That's the thing with pop stuff these days- it's so easy to fake.
Go to a Satriani or Vai or Dream theater concert, people would know In 1 minute wether or not you were really playing.
