Re: IS THIS A FAKE JEM/UV??... here (& only here) is where to ask & discuss

Hello everyone. Long-time Ibanez player (90's ERA USA Custom) but I now have the chance to buy my first Jem! I came across this Jem 777 30th Anniversary model on the local used market. Needless to say I am excited to see it come available, but am cautious due to all of the fakes. This has original case and all case candy and COA. Just hoping one or a few of you very knowledgeable JEM owners would be willing to take a look and tell me if you think this is a legit JEM 777??? Any help is MUCH appreciated!!

Site won't let me upload/attach any pictures since this is my first post.

I have a link with over 40 detailed photos, but it won't let me post it here because I am new to the forum. Email me for the link......

Why do I not want to believe this post? Maybe the rambling description that does not really articulate the gravity of a JEM777LNG numbered #249?

Looks legit but beaten to hell. He's got stones asking $4,600 for that - especially when you can get a reissue for probably less... maybe.

I don't know, man. Would a scammer take that much time to write and actual chapter book for a description with full name and phone number!!!! I would ask for a better picture of the front of the headstock as the pictures posted are blurry. I think that will help tell the story whether or not it is legit.

I agree on it looking legitimate, but also that a clearer shot of the headstock would be nice. Also some explanation of the appearance of a fingerboard separation and whether it's a problem or just the way it looks in the photo.



Personally, if I was interested in one of these, I'd rather have the original numbered guitar over a re-issue.
