Counterfiet Ibanez Images, not just jems...

PLEASE NO DISCUSSIONS! WE HAVE OTHER THREADS FOR THIS! THIS IS JUST A QUICK "REFERENCE" SECTION TO DO A QUICK CHECK OR SEE EXAMPLES OF FAKES. ALL HAVE COLOR VARIATIONS. IF YOU RESPOND, PLEASE ONLY RESPOND WITH MORE PICTURES OF FAKES.
Just so you guys can have an idea of what these look like. Most of us are accustomed to the white jem fakes, but theres a whole lot more!













This one is pretty damn convincing with the fake edge and shape. In fact the only thing overtly wrong (at least in the image) is the monkey grip
























will add more later...

Re: Counterfiet Ibanez Images, not just jems...

Actually, Penguin--there needs to be discussion! I think this is a great educational tool, and Jemsiters should be able to add found Chibanez guitars to this thread. Yes, we've all seen the Chiba-Jems, but this thread should be used to document other models being counterfeited. The sad part is that most folks come to us after the fact, and want to know if their new purchases are legit. Hopefully this thread will save a few people from getting burned.
I'm in favor of this getting stickied!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Everything in this thread will dissapear as soon as they pull the images off TT.

And posting the shots of real Ibanez they use as bait as switch has no purpose.

The S models are real, as is the 1570, and I'm thinking the Iceman is also..

Re: Counterfiet Ibanez Images, not just jems...

WOW,you really cant pick the real ones linux??

That.s the worst part of this fake industry,the old bait n switch.
The pics are legit,you know your Ibanez's so you hit the 'buy' button and 2 weeks later a piece of firewood arrives in the color you saw in the pics!...........................If your lucky.

WOW, you really think I go through and interpret every single one? No. I go through the illicit trade sites and post images of stuff they are selling. In my experience the guitar you get, is the one the one they put up. Crap guitar? Sure. A few of them are starting to get closer and closer to the real deal.

so instead of insulting me, you can help out.

edit: And ALL of these sites use the same stock images. If you see these same images elsewhere, its most likely going to be a fake. Keep that in mind as well.

Hey Penguin--I think you misread what Corey was trying to say. Some of those pics are of legit Ibbies, but the seller uses bait and switch to get a sale. I've seen it happen with Jems, too. Some of those sites put up pics of real 7vwhs, but send out the Chibas.

No isee they are real, but its the fact all the websites are tied together and use the same images from site to site. So the point is these images indicate fake sellers. Real image or not isn't the point.

Re: Counterfiet Ibanez Images, not just jems...

If this thread is going to live, then folks need to get it right with regards to real or fake.

The images of the real guitars just sew confusion so please take them down.

Thanks in advance.

It's been too long so let's play the Chibanez shuffle!











Look, they may have finally run out of Jem Jr necks.
