WHich guitar is closest to 10th anniversary JEM?

Hi all,
I'm owning a 10th anniversary JEM.
I'm using this great guitar since many years just as second guitar in case my other guitar have a broken string as I don't want to wear it more than is already is.

My first guitar currently is a JEM555 pimped with a new Edge Pro trem.
I still feel a big difference in playability (neck feels different) when switching from the JEM555 to the 10th anniversary JEM.

Which other guitar (JEM7V or even an Prestige?) will be closer to the 10th JEM in terms of playability?
Sound of the JEM555 is quite close to the 10th JEM.

Thanks already for your support.

Re: WHich guitar is closest to 10th anniversary JEM?

I agree in terms of sound, the 555 is probably closest to the 10th in terms of them having the same body and neck woods and the same pickups, but feel wise I don't personally think there's anything I've played that has the same feel on the neck as the 10. Probably closest is the JEM7vwh from the same time period, but without the binding if is always going to different, plus the finish on the back of the 10s neck feels different to me.

Overall though, a normal white JEM feels closest to the 10th anniversary to me.
