Re: jem authenticity

The scallops seem way too deep too.

Re: jem authenticity

The tremolo, the studs, the fit and finish seems cheap. single layer pickguard. Mismatched knobs, plus no shots of the back....

It is fake, however the Ibanez logo is supposed to be gold, just FYI

Re: jem authenticity

It looks fake to me. Even if the pickups were changed the headstock decal doesnt reach the tip and the "Jem" is too close to the Ibanez logo. The trem might have been re-routed for a TRS type or something but I think the string height/action tells the whole story. You could limbo under them...

hm that jem looks peculiar, is it a fake/imitation copy?

the pickups should be white, unless you swapped them(why would someone wanna swap
evos o.o),

the bridge is wrong too,

the headstock ibanez logo should not be gold, unless you put a decal over it or something...

and the line in black to the left right of the ibanez logo should stretch to reach the edge, not stop before it touches the edge of the headstock

the screws don't match up too, but maybe you lost them during installation...

hm i may be wrong... how much did you get it for?

^my response to the jem pictures above.

owner says he swapped the trem out because he couldn't maintain it as he was away.
