Hi guys titles says it all really, wondering if a 7vWH from 2015 is a real 7v from Japan or something similar to the 7vp made in Indonesia.
Cheers guys

Without pictures of a guitar nobody can tell what somebody calls something is right or not. A VWH is a VWH, a VPWH is a VPWH.

It's always better to ask as it is one of the most counterfeited guitars, but the made in japan under the serial number should have been your first clue ;)

It's a little worse for wear but they're made to be played.

Most are obvious, some would take an expert to tell, and some may be good enough to even pass that test.

You don't have to if a buyer swaps out the original junk and puts an edge in one of the very good copies.

Just search "fake jem" or 'is this jem real' on here. You'll find loads of examples people have posted. The questions/observations Rich and a lot of the other experienced posters make will give you a real good idea the typical things to look out for.
