Re: Seeking advice on a guitar with locking trem
I'd sell/px and replace the Jem Jr in your position, it's not worth throwing the money at it.
It really comes down to budget, tell us what you can afford to spend.
At $1900, the RG5120M is at the very top of my budget. I'd rather spend $1900 on a guitar that I love than $1000 on a guitar that I'll want to replace in a year. That said, if I could find an awesome guitar for $1000, I'd probably feel a lot better about it.
One other problem I have is that I haven't found a guitar shop that stocks high end Ibanezes near me, so I can't really try them out. Does anybody know of a good shop in NE Ohio?
