worth the money?

Hi guys, my local pawn shop has a jem hanging on the wall for AUD$1500, serial number is C02060625 and tagged JEM 7V WH. A couple of things make my weary of it's authenticity. The trem (Ibanez LFR) has the screw in type arm as opposed to the clip in that I'm used to on my 7620 and that I see on vai's guitars and the upper frets aren't scalloped.

Is this the real deal?? Thanks for your help.

Re: worth the money?

it may be a JEM333 with a Lo-Trs...
but parts are interchangeable...
if you could post some pics, that would be of great help

Re: worth the money?

It's definitely not a 7VWH as the tag says.

Definitely fake alright. Make sure and tell the shop as well though that it is a fake, that'll help some other poor sod from getting ripped off.
