Need Help. Ibanez Jem Floral

Please look at the below ad. I am interested in the guitar. But something tells me its not right.
I am not going to do a deal on the guitar, because something is off.

Damn I hate all these knockoff's on the market.

Re: Need Help. Ibanez Jem Floral

WHAM!!!!! I think I figured it out.

This line right here. "THE LOCKING TREMELO SYSTEM SAYS IBANEZ "LICENSED UNDER FLOYD ROSE PATS"."

Am I wrong?

Blatant fake. Look at the grip! LMAO!

About the trem, all of them say "Licensed under Floyd Rose patents".

That's so fake it's actually funny, though. It looks nothing like an FP, even with a blindfold on at 600 feet away.

Re: Need Help. Ibanez Jem Floral

The handle jumped out at me but then it could be the angle it was photographed...it's the pickups that bother me and the shadow-like stuff below the lion's claw....hmmm not sure.

Come on Chimp. Get with it! Know thy Ibanez! You can't even see the vine. The pickups are the wrong colour, the pattern is nothing like the real FP patterns, the headstock is the wrong shape, the grip is about 300 times larger than it should be, and it has a god damn TRS style trem, and so on. The truss rod cover has been screwed on wonky! LMAO!

Re: Need Help. Ibanez Jem Floral

It all looks very wrong to me! The obvious paper under clear coat instead of the fabric (that doesn't quite wrap around). The fact that the maker forgot to put Jem on the headstock (which seems to be the wrong shape), and the very strange thing that's going on with the control plate! And the final coup de grace- something that approximates to an AANJ. Oh dear.

Well as far as I know, the 15th Anniversary FP reissue did have the AANJ, but anyway...

Bingo! Headstock sucks and so do pickups but other than that I've seen much worse! Any way the seller has been emailed so let's see what comedy he comes back with!

No doubt LMAO!

I think "Phat" fingers were involved somewhere in the process And the Pattern is just as blatantly obvious!! Yuk What an eyesore!

Man...it is such BS that people try to pull off this crap

This is one of the more obvious FP fakes
