Help me decide!!!!

Here's the deal. I can get either of these guitars, but what would YOU do?

Option A

Ibanez Joe Satriani JS20S. With the cool surfer graphic. Not the JS20th.

Pro's
1 I can have it "now"
2 Cool Graphic
3 Joe Satriani rocks
4 Nice case, brand new with all case candy.
5 Limited Edition, might be worth something years from now. (I wanna play it though)

Con's
1 Made in Indonesia or China
2 Cheaper Ibanez pickups, not DiMarzio's
3 Ibanez Edge III bridge Price $1299.00


Option 2

Ibanez RG 1527 Prestige 7 String

Pro's
1 Prestige, Japanese Ibanez.
2 Prestige Case
3 7 String
4 Royal Blue kicks butt!!
5 Killer quality

Con's
1 I gotta wait a month for it to come in.
2 Price $999.00
3 ...

Other stuff
I have 7 guitars including a Newbergh Steinberger, ESP KH-2, Ibanez Jem Pmc, Ibanez Prestige in silver, 1991 RG 550DY, custom explorer, and a Kramer neck thru.

So? What whould you guys do???

IŽd go with the prestige, the js being that is not the japanese model will probably not raise its price after some years, and the edge III bridge just kills it.

I'm not telling you what to do but I would get the JS...

In fact I've been thinking about getting one myself...I want the 20th, and can afford to get it, but I have the Jem 20 and I would totally have to hear sh!t from my wife because of it. When she spends money it's never a lot so I can't even throw that back at her...Dammitt!!

Scrap both of them and get a good American Deluxe Strat.

A $1,300 guitar made in China... are you serious?

Neither of those sound very appealing. There's so many GOOD Ibanez guitars in that range. The 80's Ibanez's are starting to get some age on them and sound sooooo sweet.

Re: Help me decide!!!!

Thanks for the advice so far guys. I did actually buy a Fender American Deluxe Strat, but since I usually play metal, it didn't work out so good. Also I have a 1991 RG 550DY and a 1989 Jem PMC, so I have old Ibanez and I love them. I have NO 7 strings though, which is why I wanted the RG1527. I am definatly leaning toward the 1527.

The JS20S is a 100 with a graphic, and Korean.

There is actually no contest between the two, is there? Given the fact that you already know the cons?

Re: Help me decide!!!!

Actually, I was going to suggest getting a ding-ed up JS1000 and then having it refinished with the surfer graphic.
