any exta information would be nice also

esentialy i have up to about 100 english pounds to spend and was wondering what the best guitar i could get with that is.
esentaly im going for playability, mainly tremlo pitch return.
but could i get one with a swirly type finish, they loook soooo cool!
The lionclaw is an exaggerated routing behind the trem to allow for greater pullup on the bar. It doesn't really serve any purpose anymore, other than for aesthetics.
A jem has 6 strings, a Universe has 7.
The 7, 77, and 777 don't really mean much, but just refer to the line of jem model. 777 being the original Jems, 77 coming sometime after, and the 7 series are the more recent all access jems.
Now for the harsh part. You won't get a Jem for £100, not even close. New they retail in the UK for around £1600-£1700. I picked up my second hand 7DBK for £700. You may be able to get a second hand korean RG for £100. But no swirls sorry
It sounds like you're a beginner, will this be your first guitar?
