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.

Hello everyone!
Someone could help me?
I would like to ask your help about a jem 77 fp.
she is well worn and without many of the original parts, here in Brazil it is common to sell those parts. As I do not have much experience with jem, would be my first one rsrs, I would like to know the opinion of the experst. Notice that she doesn't have the ibanez jem neck plate. should i give up or invest?
https://rj.olx.com.br/rio-de-janeiro...roco-694253541

I'm trying to download others photos that i received...
However...
What im trying to say that maybe you can't see on those pictures is the fact that the flower inlay is all green. There is no brown like others that i see on the internet. I mean there is the green flowers inlay but the branch, its correctly?, is green to. I thought that was a kind of brown branch.
King regards!

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

Hello Everyone,

Dreamed of owning a Jem 7V WH since I was 15. Unfortunately, the guitar is not available in my country. A close friend of mine is traveling to here from Australia so I asked her to bring it along for me. I purchased the guitar online from a website that seems to be legit. She has sent me these pics and the guitar seems to be the real deal.

As per the number on the headstock, The guitar is
Built: October 2017 serial: 33137 (Factory: FugjiGen Gakki, Nagano, Japan)

But just to be extra sure, could you folks please look at the pics & vid and confirm whether the guitar is the real deal MIJ Jem 7. Also, it would help if you can point any inconsistencies or any defects if you can spot them.

Hi there! Absolute beginner when it comes to Ibanez, but I spied this in a charity shop...no serial number but the bridge and the pickups look legit... can anybody shed any light on if it’s a copy or the real deal? Thanks so much. Been reading a lot of topics but my head is mangled from all the info!

Hey guys.

Sorry total Ibanez rookie.

Is this a fake? I know the bridge is not original. I bought the guitar without a bridge for cheap and put an aftermarket in.

Made In Korea. Serial number S05050452

I have a hunch it is, I won’t be heartbroken because I have next to nothing in to it.

Thanks in advance for the help!

Hi guys, I am very interested whether this ibanez jem 7v is original or a fake.
This forum was very helpful to find indications of fake ibanez. Thanks to all for that.
