Jem Premium vs RG550
The Jem premium cost a lot more, but are made in Indonesia and probably cheaper material than the $1000 Genesis made in Japan
Its hard to justify buying a jem premium for $1700-1800 when is not even made in Japan. At these prices they should at least be made there.
So basically the $1800 jem premium is equivalent to a regular rg premium which is about $750-800 with Steve Vai $1000 tax on it lol
