Help me decide....Jem7vwh or JS1000

OK, here is the dilema. I am in the market for a new guitar. I currently have a les paul (actually heritage 150 amde to 59 spec) a 335 (actually a heritage 535), a 62ri strat with fralins, and a ernie ball axis. SO as you can see I was having a hard time of what to get next. I have bought and sold countless guitars over the years, and am at the point now where only the truly great guitars stay in the arsenal. I am a huge Vai fan, don't aspire to play like him, but love to listen and watch him play. So obviously my first thought was to get a JEM of whoch the only one I really want is the vwh. But then I read some really good stuff about the js1000. Obviously I dig satch a lot too. Obviously these are 2 very different guitars, pickups, body, and neck being the major differences. Of these the neck is the most important to me. I had a rg520qs a couple of years ago and HATED the wizard neck. way too thin, horrible for sustain. And very uncomfortable to play. What are the physical differences between these 2 guitars neck profiles. And I would like to here some comparison opinions on these 2 guitars. I won't have the privelage of playing before buying so all info is welcome. Thanks.

If you don't like thin necks I'd say get an RGT. Between the js and the jem, I'd say go for the jem, only cause the js has a basswood body, and I personaly like the tone of the alder body on the jem over the js, unless you get say a js10 or js90, I'd take either of those over the jemvwh.
