Re: Fake Jem7v?

Are these pictures of the same guitar? Pic #1 has black DiMarzio logo on pickups, differently from the others. Also, fretboard inlay seems incomplete on pics #1 and #2. Tremolo also looks a lot like an original Floyd Rose, not an Edge.

So, to me it's fake, but these pictures are really bad quality.

Looks fake. Hard to tell from the pics.
The real telltale sign IMO will be the price. If it's 75% or less than a Jem in the store then my bet is it's fake.
