What model is this Jem and what is it worth?

There's a local guy selling this Jem but it doesn't come with the factory hardcase, rather just a roadrunner case. Is this thing real? what model is it?
What would it be worth?

Can you get pics of the trem route and trem? Kind of suspicious he didn't send pics of the trem because thats the part that usually gives away fakes.

agreed with comments above... trem is not correct, headstock logo is incorrect, etc.

Re: What model is this Jem and what is it worth?

Sorry dude. 4 other things show this as a fake;

Logo swish doesn't drop off the top of the head stock. it should.
There is writing in colour on the pick ups. Dimarzio writing is embossed not printed or painted.
String tree isn't level with the nut.
and truss rod cover screws are in the wrong place.

selling this as an honest fake will keep a persons reputation sound.
