This is the Jem that made Ibanez come out with the 333.
The logo is all wrong.
the word "jem" is all wrong.
The Monkey grip is heinously wrong
7vwh's have gold pole pieces on the pickups.
The knobs * switch cover are all wrong - should be white
The string retainer bar isi n the wrong place
The screws in the bridge and locking nut should be black, not gold.

If it's less than $200, go for it - how bad could it be...but it's not an Ibanez and certainly isn't a Jem.
