Possible Fake JEM 7V for sale on Japan?

Hi everyone, I'm new here, this is a nice place about Jems!

I have a quick question,I'm from Peru and I have an Aunt who traveled to Japan and I asked her if she could buy me a Jem 7V directly on a guitar shop on Japan and she found a USED one for US$700, do you think is a good price or maybe it's a fake, I'll post pics later (my aunt has it)... I don't know but it's not easy for me to believe that Japanese could sell fake jems

Sounds too good to be true, but only pictures can tell.
One thing to look for is the serial no should start with the letter "F" if not it's a fake.

Some of the Chibas have the "F" now.....
That's not a tell-tale anymore.
Need pics!

There's plenty of fake JEM's in Japan, like every other country on earth now.

Yep--don't think Hoshino has plans to train and deploy a "Counterfeit Guitar Takedown Force" anytime soon....

The cheapest I saw a JEM in Tokyo was about $1100 and that one was pretty run down. Lots of corrosion on the bridge, quite a few chips in the paint and who knows what else might have been wrong with it.
