Is this a real 7VSBL JEM

Is this a real JEM it is a 7VSBL the model number is F0244698 made in Japan. I just ask cause the long straight vine inlay is green and in other pics it is more white.

Re: Is this a real 7VSBL JEM

The VSBL looks perfectly fine, though I will admit that I've never seen an '02 with the Edge Pro bridge, mine (also an '02) has the Lo-Pro, the Edge Pro shouldn't appear until 2003 models. This could be a late '02 or something along those lines, I don't know exactly how the transition to the Edge Pro really went.

The VWH also looks fine, but someone has replaced the stock knobs with gold domes to give it that ever so popular Chibanez look. Extremely questionable taste adding yet more gold to a VWH, but otherwise the guitar appears to be legit.

The transitions in this types of cases are in no way exact, so don't worry about dates and hardware overlapping to much.

And what's wrong with gold knobs on a VWH? I mean, If you're wearing the white Elvis jumpsuit, you might as well wear the shades as well

I wonder if it is actually is suppose to have a lo pro cause it doesn't bend back with the bar as good as my VWH.

I actually thought of that, but I don't believe an Edge Pro would fit the Lo-Pro route that cleanly.
