There were four of those, and it was from a hacked seller account. That's why the hacker stated to avoid the send seller a message button on ****, and email him directly with the address posted in the listing.

This one looks authentic to me, but my eye obviously isn't as trained as others I'm sure. Can you tell me what about this particular guitar makes it obviously a fake? I'm trying to develop my sleuthing skills. Is it having to do with the monkey-grip? (Might look slightly large, but hard to tell from the various angles.)

Thanks,
Gary

The first thing I check for whenever I get the impression that something is slightly wrong but you can't quite put your fingers on it, is the position of the pickguard screws. Real jems have two screws really close to the pickup selector to begin with.

Screw placement, look at the JEM logo placement, truss rod cover, serial number (the real obvious ones say MADE DY TEAM J CRAFT instead of MADE BY TEAM J CRAFT), monky grip size/alignment, inlays (the brown root too light), trem (even though the counterfeiters are getting better by installing an EDGE lookalike, they still don't have it right--when have you EVER seen an EDGE with a SCREW IN bar?), and another dead-giveaway--the neck heel (the bootlegs' neck heels are way too long).
