Hi all, I am looking at a JEM7v it’s a bit “tatty”, but would welcome any expert opinion to check whether it’s genuine. It looks it. From Serial No its a 2006. Some tarnishing of trem, but is pop in and decals and nut cover look ok to me. Attached a few fotos I have from seller, would welcome some guidance as to whether it looks genuine or not. Trem doesn’t seem to have the floyd licence wording is one thing I have spotted. Many thanks for input before I make the plunge, otherwise for less money I may go for a new 70v in sea foam green which is a lot cheaper…. Am in UK.

It's real, no doubt about that. Hasn't been well looked after though, those strings look like they've been on the guitar since it was made in 2006. Yellowing suggests it wasn't kept in the case and has either been smoked or left in sunlight a lot (both?), the rust suggests it spent a period in high humidity like being left in a damp garage or something. Just take into account that the bridge saddles almost definitely need to be replaced due to the amount of corrosion.

I personally would dodge this guitar unless you're getting a great deal on the price, Ibanez replacement parts aren't cheap (especially the Japanese trems like the Edge Pro on this one).
Cheers Baz, appreciate it.
