Well, you're kinda asking 2 questions here...

1) are JEMs better than expencive RG's ?
Personally, I don't think so. I've had quite a few Jems and quite a few expensive RG's (meaning prestige, usa custom, j-custom, etc). The craftsmanship, attention to detail, playability, and tone are all top notch. Now, if you're comparing Jems to RG570's or RG550's, then the Jems do have an advantage.

2) I have hurd many people nag about how JEMs are just pricy RGs with Steves name on them.
Technically, a Jem is a super-hot-rodded RG. Or perhaps an RG is a really stripped-down Jem. What distinguishes a Jem from an RG isn't the price--it's the features.
