Re: What seperates a JEM from a RG?
Jems often have better woods compared to RGs, like a higher density maple neck so they'll sound warmer. As far as I know there are no RGs with ebony (no jems either at this moment) nor RGs that carry Evolutions. Trem springs are lighter too on RGs so they have less strings tension, which makes them play light but feel and sound very cheap too. High end RGs from the late 80s/early 90s feel just as massive as Jems. Frankly, I don't really care. I've got a Vigier hehe.
