J-Custom, Prestige, JEM so confused :D

I have recently acquired a J-Custom and now very confused what to play J-custom or Prestige or JEM ?

J-Custom neck and fret is OH MY GOD.....its excellent for Ibanez players and super smooth....I didn't know 4mm maple top make HUGE tone difference, it makes a J-Custom very well balanced. I have a 2820 which is made with same body and neck materials except maple top and the two sounds very different.

In terms of fret treatment, J-Custom won .... But I think JEM 90th is on a par with JC for some reasons. Here are some pics...

Thanks man. I was able to snag 2 of them, a Trans Blue and a Trans Violet one. There were another 2 in those very colours on ebayuk in the last year or so, think the prices were 1500 for the TV model and 1200 for the TB. I'll keep my eyes peeled for one for you.

A fantastic collection of guitars! Well done! The J custom will sound even better when you change out the stock Tone Zone and Air Norton. Did that on mine and love it even more now!
