today i stopped by my local music store to find a used ibanez JEM for 450 dollars, i didnt get to look at it or play it really so im gonna stop by the store again to check it out but i want to figure out what specific model it is and i was hoping you all could help me out. It had a floral pattern and a pink vine inlay.

Does it look like this but with different colors, a pink inlay, differently arranged flowers, and not signed by Vai?

For that cheap, I assume it's a JEM 555 which are utter crap...

EDIT: NVM, from your description it doesn't sound like one. Pictures would be helpful though...

They do make some different floral patterns. But for one that cheap either they dont know what they have or it has some problems.

That combined with the low price would make me very cautious. I think it would be pretty hard not to know what a JEM is (and what they're worth) so I'm starting to think that it's fake...

Buy it, you'll probably never find one for that cheap ever again.
If you don't like it, try and return it. If that fails, seek out Craigslist and sell it for more than you paid.

i registered at the jemsite forums im gonna ask there, yeah i reallly hope its not a fake... next time i go to see it ill take pics and look at the serial number and stuff

It's not illegal to own fake things, however, it is illegal to sell them, the STORE would get in trouble, not the TS, and also

Yes you should, and I reported him for that because the posts that I've seen him make are quite offensive and annoying, he's quite arrogant you see.

that's a ****ing terrible thing to say you disgust me. please get off this forum you don't deserve the amenities this site provides.


and yeah you should probably mention to the store that it's a fake and see what they say. better yet, ask them if it's real and see what they say.

by the way ts, your avatar is unreal. it's pretty much my best friend at this point in time. it has more personality than my girlfriend.

Sexy JEM pic


I'm not usually a fan of JEMs or whatever, not my style of music, and I don't usually dig the ones I see (white with gold hardware typically) but that is fckin' beautiful.

I can be uptight at times, but he's the first person I've reported for an offensive post in this forum.

I have reported some Pit Monkeys for spam though.

at that price i doubt you'll get anything nice. because i think shops are not stupid.
