Is this legit?

I sure hope so because I bought it

http://s1143.photobucket.com/user/of...?sort=3&page=1

Pick guard seems odd and center pickup is backwards... just nervous

Thanks for any help!

Re: Is this legit?

The tremelo, headstock, and serial all look good to me. Could be they replace the pickguard and a lot of people dont know you can put that one in backward.

Re: Is this legit?

Thanks man! That makes me feel a little better for sure!

I don't think there are really any blue sparkle fakes and after looking at these pictures against others, I feel pretty sure I'm okay.

Thanks again for replying! I appreciate it!

Re: Is this legit?

Thanks Saxopwn! Nice to hear you say that! And yes! It is nice isn't it?!

The guy said it was barely touched in the last 12 years or so and I believe it! The truss cover still has the plastic on it (although it may be a new cover?) but yeah, I am so excited to get it because I have been wanting a blue sparkle JEM since I got the JEM 7VWH

I'm actually thinking about getting another one from a guy here on Jemsite if I have enough left over after bills. I think I might put a sustained and a high pass filter on it, Kind of "trick it out" so to speak.

Man... I just LOVE JEM guitars!

Re: Is this legit?

Very nice Mrchims!

Obviously totally legit. The guard is the correct w/b/w. The mid pickup could have been installed backward from the factory........ not a big deal or a red flag at all.
