  1. Ibanez JEM, UV, JS & Other Signature Models
    Hi all, I'm new here, hailing from Hellgium. I once had the opportunity to buy an FP in 1996/97 from my then guitar teacher. I believe he asked about 1000€ back then, which was a bit too much for me at the time, playing only 1-2 years, but I've always loved the finish. Now, I'm looking to buy...
  2. Pickups & wiring
    Please help to determine the authenticity of the pickup. The original neck N2 pickup in my RG7621 has matte surface. This pickup`s coils are glossy. The baseplate looks legit. Isn`t it DIY hybrid?
  3. Ibanez JEM, UV, JS & Other Signature Models
    I have always been intrigued by the JEM77WDP "Woody" model. I know other models have had fakes made of them...Has this model had verified fakes made of it?
  4. Ibanez JEM, UV, JS & Other Signature Models
    Hi all, I am just wondering whether if this is fake. Search around and found some of clues such as pickguard screws and JEM written on the headstock not being right... I am not very knowledgeable in the tremolo, thus would like some help to identify em. What do you guys think? Would...

    Hey new here! But I'm trying to buy a jem 7v used off of someone and I'm not sure if it's real or fake... the only images that have been posted are pretty blurry so it's hard to tell, but it looks real to me. Just looking for a second opinion! I did ask for more images with a picture of a...
  6. Ibanez JEM, UV, JS & Other Signature Models
    Hi guys, So after thinking a lot I decided to buy a desert yellow 777 30th anniversary Jem. I think I got a good deal. The special picks were missing, but I didn't care, I thought it was still a good deal. Then I got home and I noticed the special engraved 30th anniversary plate that's...

    Hi, My father has recently picked up this "old" Ibanez Roadster II Series from a friend and I'm not sure about its authenticity. The serial number on the AANJ is 'F842112' and it has the tiger stripe like blue and black colour pattern on the body. I havent found anything online at all that...
  9. Pickups & wiring
    Hi, few days ago I was given pair of ''used'' EMG 81 and 85. I tried to wire them to EMG wiring but, they didn't work. So I was searching for answers, I found out that they are fake. Luckily I didn't paid yet, so I will return them. So If you buying used pickups or guitars with EMGs, check...

    I just joined this forum, so Hello! I am one step from acquiring my first ever Ibanez and I would like you to help me a bit, if that's possible :) Can you guys please tell me if this guitar is/looks legit, because the serial number seems a bit smudged. I asked the owner for a better pic, but...
  11. Vendors, Auction & Reseller Talk
    Hi guys, So after more than 10 years I've finally decided to take the plunge and get my first (and probably only) JEM. Naturally, my first choice is a 7VWH. I have found this sale on eBay and I think it's pretty good...
  12. Ibanez JEM, UV, JS & Other Signature Models
    Hi Guys, After nearly getting done myself I'm putting together an article for my website and am looking at trying to help people avoid buying fake Ibanez jems. I know there are a few posts on "is this a fake" or "is that a fake" but couldn't find a definitive post on what the forum community...

    Hi Everyone, Newbie here. Please help me out and tell me if this is fake? The paint job is green rather than grey and I can't seem to find anything of a green version of Giger Iceman. I have seen the guitar in person already and i'm just not so sure if it's legit since i'm still pretty new to...
  14. Ibanez JEM, UV, JS & Other Signature Models
    Hi guys, A dude in my area is selling his 'Ibanez Jem Jr', possibly 'custom' (idk if he added that himself since he painted the front or if its actually part of the model name. He says it's made in Indonesia, but around here (outside the US) there's a ton of misinformation on the part of the...

    This guitar is original or fake? produto.mercadolivre.com.br/MLB-567327549-guitarra-ibanez-jcustom-ccase-_JM The back of this headstock is so strange..... My J. Custom has "Masterfully crafted for unparalleled sound, maximum playabillity and exquisite beauty" on back of the headstock, and...

    Hey Jemsite. Just another thread where we're going to beat that, poor, deceased horse. I've been looking around online at the Chinese reproduction Gibsons, or Chibsons if you will. I'm thinking of buying one for some practice with fixing things and making adjustments without feeling to guilty if...
  17. Ibanez JEM, UV, JS & Other Signature Models
    Hi everyone, Just came across this on eBay and it actually looks pretty decent with the exception of the two different knobs and chrome hardware. It's listed as JEM 7VWH, but they don't come with chrome, do they? ebay dot com/itm/111251436153?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649

    I know this thread has been posted here atleast a million times (atleast), and peoples reaction to the word "fake","Chinese" and "chibanez" are instantly "firewood", crap and so on. My only issue with these answers would be the fact that most of these people saying these things havent ever owned...

    Hey guys, Im looking at an auction for an 1984 Ibanez Destroyer DT 350 (or so the seller says it is) but I noticed that the headstock is missing any reference whatsoever, its just plain white, what do you guys think? :confused:
  20. Ibanez JEM, UV, JS & Other Signature Models
    It really is a shame as, to be fair at first sight your heart jumps a little. Somebody is trying to sell this in Aberdeen for 1k. Even the pic screams obvious alarm bells. Decals / Screw in Trem. If Ibanez were to manufacture this it would surely be a 555 twin neck.
