Re: I tried a jem jr at guitar center
for $500 I was expecting better quality, guitar should cost no more than $350
It is a $350 RG but the added value is the monkey grip and the name, neither of which effects playability. Nearly all signature guitars from any manufacturer you will be paying additionally for things that have nothing to do with playability or sometimes even sound. That's why Ibanez loves Signature instruments. They make more profit from them.
