¿How can I know if this J Custom is real or fake?

I am interested in buying the following Ibanez J Custom, however I would like you to help me finding out if it is original or not. Unfortunately the seller knows almost zero information about the guitar (doesn’t not know from which year it is, does not know which RG is, does not know which pickups does it have ... basically does not know anything). I asked him if he had a certificate of authenticity and J Custom case it should have, he didnt answered ... Anyway, I'll see the guitar in the coming days to see what's up, however I would be interested if you could help me giving me some tips to distinguish photos (if it is real or fake), or give me some tips when I see the guitar live.

The guitar is in the following link, there are 4 pictures of it http://articulo.deremate.cl/MLC-4088...-impecable-_JM

PD: ¿Is it a RG8420ZD PA? (the seller doesnt know, so i'm guessing).

Thanks!!!

I'd be very wary of a con at that price [and story].

I was also thinking that's a great price for it. The OP did say he's seeing the guitar in a few days, I assume he means in person. Perhaps something is wrong with it?

If you can inspect in hand and the neck and condition is good, I'd buy it twice.

Whats the price convert to in USD?

NVM... figured it out. $2400 seems high for a used ZD to me......... what do they normally go for?

Looks like a genuine piece. I'd pay $2100 (max) with case if all is ok.
