A JEM UV7? Is it a JEM or a UV7? One has 6 strings, one has 7. Sounds like it could be a '96 model, but...pictures would make it easier to tell

Is a Refurnished Version:



These are mass production models that were sold and later given back to the seller for inperfections, Ibanez now repairs and replaces any damaged parts. These guitars are fully functional . They look and sound just like a brand new Ibanez JEM, yet they have a much more affordable price!

But the price is much more affordable, i want to know if this guitars are really ibanez guitars or if were made in other country ike korea or china

Doesn't look very legit. They stole the entire page from www.vai.com, which is easy enough to do. For $350? You can't even buy a real JEM7VWH neck for that much, let alone a full guitar.

Proceed with caution.

This is the biggest crock I've ever heard of. First, Ibanez doesn't buy used guitars and refurbish them, second, $350 is so laughable I can't even crack a smile. Don't proceed with caution, don't proceed at all!

Okay - here's the official word:

The guitars they are selling never belonged to Steve, they have ripped off my page design, using images that are not theirs, and I'm pursuing this matter. The image is particularly misleading, as is the use of the serial number which is from one of Steve's guitars.

We don't look favorably on people who try to sell guitars and suggest they belonged to Steve, or people who use images from Vai.com without permission.

Remember - if something is too good to be true, it's always a good idea to stay well clear of it.

Please PM with this person's email address.

Peace,

Mikey

They're not claiming they were once Steve's, but what they are claiming is just as ludicrous

Oh my gawd!!!!! I clicked on the pay now and got this: http://oogly.20m.com/CC.html It is a picture of a paysite that thay have set up to get people's credit card numbers. It is all very badly set up............people could fall for it I guess.

The CC information from that site is mailed to
mailto:[email protected] accourding from the source of the page.

The site also claims 128 bit encryption, but it's actually plain http in stead of https....

Anyway, this is such an obvious fraud, it's silly.

My guess is that the guy who has used that side as he tells, is part of the scam, but that is a bit hard to proof I guess.
