i imagine the wieght of the various JEM models will be available from the spec section of this website. The various models weigh different amounts, so you'll have to be more precise when you ask. Also, a good way to find out is to put the guitar on some scales!

In a m100 between 10-15kg.
I just sent a j-custom last week and put 11kg and it got there fine.
If you stick a decent weight on they usually don't bother too much, but if you put say 5kg on then they'll weight and slam you with a fee for taking the p*ss!
Tip..... I was going to use Fedex or ups but they wanted over 140. Parcel force (which then gives it to USPS) was only 87 (plus 5 for 1k insurance) - I shipped it Friday afternoon and it arrived in Colorado at 9.30am on Monday morning. I've always been sus about Royalmail but they did a good job and their tracking numbers are continuously updated not just every evening.

Give them a try (Datapost tarrif)

According to guitarist magazine, a jem is about : 3.6 kg!!! (the guitar alone, without the case)
I don't know how much it is with a case (I think that's the way you want to send your guitar).
Hope it could help!
