Korean Made JEM 7VWH

Im wondering about how these sound/play compared to Japanese models?

http://www.trademe.co.nz/Browse/List...px?id=52106505

That is the one im looking at.

Im assuming its just a low model of the JEM. I'll have to sell my '90 RG570 to help pay for it, but i really need a newer guitar.

Any thoughts?

Taken from the actual page you linked to:
"This is a IBANEZ JEM 7VWH STEVE VAI Replica GUITAR this is why the buy know is so cheap-( Made in Korea ) Not Japan..."

Please note "Replica".

Replace the word REPLICA with FAKE, and Korea with China, and then see one of the many FAKE JEM threads on the board.

Even if you were to find a real 555 or 333, most on this BB would suggest you keep your 570.

Re: Korean Made JEM 7VWH

There is no such thing as a Korean Jem 7VWH. Only fakes. No Korean (Ibanez or not) could ever have the quality of any Ibanez made in Japan.

Since you know what not to do, I feel I have to add a different comment just for contrasting purposes

OMG! You should buy that ASAP!*

Glad to see someone is at least attempting to do some homework before handing over their money. Congratulations, you've just saved yourself a lot of money and a tremendous headache.
