88 Jem Root beer, best playing guitar ! suprised?

I am quite suprised that my newly aquired 88 Jem rb is my #1 playing guitar in sustain, neck playability :


I have it set up with 9.5 D'addario customs action is low but not crazy.. and this thing stays in PERFECT tune... I am blown away by it.


So far my 87rg550 has been my #1 . but this one just has something special about it.. I really cant put it down !

I prefer my RB over other Jems, I sold my 10th because the RB was better in feel and sound - to me.

I agree, root beer's are wonderful. My RB stays in perfect tune as well.

I m confused. Description says that rb is basswood body ...seems too much grain for basswood?

Another vote from me for the RB being fantastic. Mine's got some wear on it, well loved before I got it, but it's an amazing instrument.
