Help to identify if this Ibanez is real or fake

Hi, Im from Argentina and some dude want to change my Carvin jb200C for his Ibanez john scofield, the problems are the followings:
It doesnt has the same tuners
It doesnt has the sticker inside the body
It doesnt has the john scofield trus rod cover

i searched theserial number and it seems that is all ok. Made in Japan 2005

Im asking for your help mainly because the guitr is in the other side of my country and i dont have the money to go there and see the guitar and come back to my city.

Nothing about it doesn't say JSM but the missing sticker inside the body would worry me.

Re: Help to identify if this Ibanez is real or fake

Is the trader the original owner? Did you ask for receipt of purchase? Looks like a clean JSM with the standard prestige artstar/artist machine heads installed and JSM ones removed. Perhaps the original owner removed them along with the JSM cover and body sticker, i won't speculate why but some value is lost without the body sticker & paperwork. Ask the owner and see what they say.

The JSM has more value than the Carvin if both were fully mint with all original paperwork.

I personally would ask for a some more high quality photos to rule out any damage and do the trade barring any structural issues.
