    Nope, that is totally the wrong trem on that guitar. EBMM doesn't use a 6 screw Fender style trem on the JP or any of their guitars for that matter. The inlays look off as well... but not being super knowledgable about the JP guitars I'll let the JP guys spot the other issues... but the trem was easy to spot.

    Trem is wrong, as Stratty mentioned. Pickups look wrong. Finish looks bad, particularly the burst. The sound is horrible. Yeah, low quality vid, but the guitar still sounds shrill, tinny and buzzy. It's a fake.

    I’m always amazed at the level of half-assedness that goes into these MM copies.

    Couldn't quite tell but it looks like a bevel rather than the forearm scoop too. A copy and a bad one.
