Re: You cant fool me!

A good example of a seller with intentionally poor pictures trying to pass off a fake for a real JEM.

Re: You cant fool me!

the dead giveaway (other than "MIK") was the trem arm. Alos, the placement of the word 'Jem' on the headstock.

funny stuff. good thing you're not dumb like him

Re: You cant fool me!

I've got to admit, whilst that guitar isn't fooling anybody, that is probably the closest I've seen a fake come to the real deal.

Re: You cant fool me!

The Ibanez swoosh looks better than most, as does the monkey grip... but the rest of the guitar is an obvious fake... wrong shapes on the vine, pigeon poop on fret 24, wrong tremolo...

It wouldn't be too difficult to pass this off as the real deal... the fakes have really eroded the used JEM market.

The shape of the pickguard (around the knobs) is disgusting too.
