yeah my dad plays softball and he saw a bat on ebay for $300, and on dhgate he saw it for $100. he bought it and recieved a small-arse dollar tree little league bat. my mom warned him, but he didn't listen, and got scammed

It's a fake. You can tell just by how the logo looks. But the build quality is probably fine. I'd buy it anways.

Scratch that. dhgate is a scam site. Don't buy.

Of course it isn't real, but I wonder if I could buy one and then put in some good pickups in it...

You do realise that some fakes can actually be better than the real thing?
There's a special sex move I do called the Charizard.
It's where you light the girls pubes, then put it out with your cum and run around the room flapping your arms screaming, "You don't have enough badges to train me!"

That is a very convincing fake Ibanez JEM, I might add. Almost looks like the real thing.

The headstock is pretty off... convincing though.

I kinda want to buy one, but I don't want to be scammed.

Omfg, for real?!

How can a $100 JEM7V be better than the $2.000 version?

^you do know why they cost 2,000 dollars right? And it's not because they cost $2,000 to make.

Yeah, but I think it would cost a teeny weeny bit more than $100 to make.

Of course, it is also illegal to own counterfeit guitars in the USA.

Buy it anyway. With a copy that real, only a true professional can really tell the difference unless you tell them it's a fake.

This is an extremely crappy replica. Anyone who's seen/played a few real JEMs would be able to pick out the differences immediately. The inlays are so off it's hilarious.

Exactly, I soon as I saw the headstock, I knew it was fake... Also, the body shape looks like it is off as well.
