Which guitar is better for the price - Jem or Prestige

If you could get either a Jem777VBK or a Prestige 1200 for the exact same price and condition, which one would you go for?

Thanx,
Peter

If the Prestige has an AANJ, I think I would get it. I love the all-access necks. I find it hard to get used to playing the upper registers of my uv7bk.
But the JEM is... well... It's a JEM. LOL Hard to go wrong either way, I guess. But the neck joint would decide it for me.

Alden : )

that's just cuz you're used to putting your hand around really small diameter objects!!!!!!


for serious, I'd go for the Jem, I think it's a nicer axe, and if you do wanna sell it, I think it will maintain a little better value eventually.

ooooooo good one alden, like my brain, gee, that made real great sense, besides, it's been medically proven the size of the brain does not affect how smart someone is or isn't. however, placement of the brain does I'm sure, especially in your case, where you sit on it all the time!!!!! LOL

It says loser across your forehead, man. And when we talked about doing this in messanger you told me what to write. Why are you trying to make me look like a fool, now? What do you want me to say next? Try and stick with the script here, dude.

You have a link to the "prestige 1200" model you're referring to?

ya know, I'm done polluting this guys thread, if you could actually come up with something decent, it'd be worth it, unfortunately, the only intelligent sound you can make comes out of your butt! That loser you saw written on a face, dude, it doesn't matter how much you scrub the mirror, it won't come off (reflection of yourself in case you didn't get it)

as for what was said in messanger,

The world needs more pink guitars says:
you think I'm dumb enough to actually set myself up???? Does it say Alden across my forehead????
A gentle hand, a secret touch on the heart. says:
nope
A gentle hand, a secret touch on the heart. says:
it's on my face
A gentle hand, a secret touch on the heart. says:
no, wait, i didn't mean that
The world needs more pink guitars says:
GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR *like a big dog *
A gentle hand, a secret touch on the heart. says:
puuuuuuuuuurrrrrrrrrrrr *like a ******


for those of you wondering, Ya Yo Gakk would be the gentle hand, and a secret touch, but it's not on his heart, he does have a big heart, he's just still looking for that other thing, go buy yourself a microscope bro, you'll find it eventually

Sorry Glen, I'm done, just a stupid bit of frivolity, it's a long weekend here in Canada, us Canadians possibly are a bit inebriated, my apologies.
