Is this Ibanez JEM 7V a fake?

Hi all,

There is a offer for a Ibanez JEM 7V near my location, but I'm not sure, if it's real.

He said he bought it in 2014 and has the bill. Interestingly he has no case, which I thought comes with all JEM 7V models included. Also he says, he hasn't played this guitar. (Who keeps guitars for 2-3 years without playing them?)

Offer with pictures: https://www.ebay-kleinan...maha-/596749848-74-9190

I'm gonna ask for the serial number, because I can't read it very well in the picture. If it's the real deal, I would suppose it's a good offer. Still the missing case and his bad german made me very curious.

Thanks for your answers in advance.

Whoever was taking those pictures looks to have a very shaky hand! haha.

That being said, the guitar in those pictures looks to be authentic! The bridge is correct, as well as the other hardware. Nothing looks to be out of place to me. In one of the last pictures you can see most of the serial number. It starts with "F12..." which signifies that it was made in 2012 originally.

Yes, this would have originally come with a hardshell case. This guy may have bought it used without a case from someone else, or maybe sold the case separately or lost it perhaps.

Hope this helps,

Thank you very much for your reply.

Sounds nice, I will check it out. I hope I can get the case separately.
