Re: For who doesn't know...FP2 fakes..

Ummmm--yes, we know. It had been discussed in a few threads and a few have been reported as they hit eBay. I even pointed out how close the trems are getting on those.

Woohoo, I'm still no specialist in JEMs (I'm working on it, ha ha) but these get really close to the original.
Frightening!

Re: For who doesn't know...FP2 fakes..

Keep in mind that those boneheads sometimes post pics of real Jems, but ship fakes. Example--of those 3 pics you showed us, the top is the Chiba and the bottom 2 are real Jemsite.
We are also aware that these are listed on several sites besides ebay-- but Rich is limited to removing only the US listed auctions.
Go to tradetang and look at all the Chibas.

Take a look at the FP2 page at ibanez.com
Scroll down and click on each picture--see anything familiar???

Well it looks like it's the same pattern. Or some attempt at copying that. But they did it so badly. The color and details are so off.

I'm talking about the middle picture of the first post--the closeup of the pickups. It's directly from the Ibanez page.

I wouldn't get the real one. I think the pattern sux.

I love the original floral patern. They should have reissued that.

I was about to say that the pickups look like REAL DiMarzios in the second picture!!!

Scary scary.

I actually really like the FP2 but it does need the coloured pickup swap, and like many others I prefer the original FP.

I wasn't a fan when it came out, but it's growing on me. You're right about the Dimarzios! Multicolored black/red would look so much better.
