I saw that. Nice looking guitar, but I sort of doubt it's a proto. My guess was that it was some sort of luthier body, perhaps Sims UK.

I don't know exactly what model this is supposed to be, but I have to say, that is really a gorgeous guitar. Way too expensive for MY budget, but I would sure love to have it. It says verified by Ibanez, so if that is true, I would hope they will include that verification, especially for that much money.

I call bs.
I would think if it was a prototype it wouldn't have a regular F serial number and looking at their other listings, that's the only guitar. I find that most people that sell all sorts of things rarely know anything about what they sell, especially when the name seems to be pawn shop

I'm sure I've seen that before... I doubt it's a proto.

No way that's a proto neck.......it's a standard everyday Super Wiz.

There's also no way Ibanez would ever put JEM appointments on a non-JEM.

It's just a really nice custom job being sold by a gold digging, BS spewing prick.

Oh, THAT yahoo.

Had no idea who supposedly "confirmed" what it was. Supposedly a dealer called them.
Refused to pull the neck to reveal what it really is.
Looks like a Sims custom refin, or similar.

Those are all my thoughts as well. I just thought it might help someone like we try to do with fake jems.
