I have a JEM that’s a fake. Seems like we should be able to verify & report with manufacturer? Anyway, here’s my method based on build you can easily verify. The handle doesn’t have aggressive point cut; more smooth & rounded. The truss Rod cover is 3 ply(?), & not as tall by 1/4 inch. The pick guard is smaller in size, & only contains 9, not 10 primary screws.It’s an alledged 08 Team J Craft, Japan. Perhaps the neck pocket to body contact is short,& bolt placement off, due to ? Somewhat smaller body dimension? Needless, all else is perfect, except fret job I wouldn’t expect from a Japanese guitar. Another possible quick clue? Hopefully these points help someone. Thanks for all you patrolling the fakes,& helping others with the little things. I got an awesome player for $450 I guess, but think fake things should be stopped.
