I think it's a real FP - too many things are right for a fake.
Still, wouldn't buy it without seeing some decent pics so ask the seller to email you some proper pics.

re: Anti-Fraud Thread: verify a guitar, seller, fakes

jem vwh neck, fake in my opinion
don't buy

110158274836

neck bolts holes in wrong position
logo and truss rod cover smells fish
no close up pic for the serial numbers
And I guess there would have been a code in the neck bolts area

"Neville" (Yes, the one Vai used for Fire Garden)
(I think its the real one)
330236392386 - Going for $7,777

(And my first post too )

Also wanted to ask. I'm about to get my first JEM, my first Ibanez too actually. I was thinking of a JEM77V BK or a JEM7V WH. Not sure yet (I'm pretty aware that they're quite different ). What should I look for to know its its a imitation or not since I'm pretty new and inexperienced?

Cheers.

Get a picture and post it here. Then you'll know.

If you're getting it second hand, obviously.

re: Anti-Fraud Thread: verify a guitar, seller, fakes

Hi all,
This JEM7VWH is for sale in The Netherlands: http://www.marktplaats.nl/index.php?...d%3D7%26fs%3D1
It is stated that it is a new JEM 7VWH, but I am missing a truss rod cover, a serial number on the back of the headstock. So am I right when stating that this is a chibanez?

Hi,
Well I confronted the seller and the ad has been changed. Apparently he assembled this guitar and since he thought everyone could see that it was fake decided not to mention it in the first place.

Gentlemen. I need a verdict on this puppy.

I'm pretty good on spotting fakes normally but this one is a little unusual so I need help.

re: Anti-Fraud Thread: verify a guitar, seller, fakes

Found this today on my local craigslist. http://portland.craigslist.org/wsc/msg/876401795.html . Assuming that link won't last long, the ad links to another page, http://www.ioffer.com/i/IBANEZ-JEM-7...-USA--76745416 .

There are numerous other Ibanez's on that site that look very suspicious. Angle and placement of the Ibanez logo's, the tuning pegs, the Edge trem, the screw in bar, trem on the black one, knob placement on the black one....

Counterfeits like these are very easy to spot.
