Question LNG jem vs Vdy jem, who wins?

Hey guys I recently acquired a jem Vdy from a fellow jemsiter and I had some questions. I'm just wondering how it compares to the LNG, they both seem to be highly sought after jems. What's the differences between the two? Production number, playability, value, etc. I'm considering buying a LNG (if I can find one for the right price) and would like to know how it compares to what I got! Thanks in advance everyone!

The LNG has rarity on its side -- only 777 were made, all signed by Steve Vai. They don't sell cheap, unless the person has no idea what they have.

Other than that and color, they are the same guitar.

My bad. I was thinking of the DY. In that case, I like the VDY over the LNG. I prefer the vine inlays better, for some reason.

Didn't the VDY also have a wizard profile neck like the PBK?

You could just cut to the chase and track down the ultra-rare Jem 777VLNG:

Yes. Probably the only difference you would feel while playing.

I want to see your best suit! I will admit I looked into getting a vine tattoo at one point, I ended up selling the vine and kept the dot... Dot tattoo - not cool.
