Re: Prestige Vs Jem

Its actually slightly less blabla due mostly to the lack of a handle in the RG.

Re: Prestige Vs Jem

Which Prestige and which Jem? A basswood Prestige 2550 and a basswood Jem7DBK should sound the same if you put Breeds in the RG. Now a Prestige 3120 with a mahogany/maple body will sound different from any Jem. I don't say better or worse as it is strictly a matter of taste. Mr. Vai gets an awesome tone from his alder Jems but I do love my 3120 and J-Custom too. Just finishing up a custom alder Jem so it will be fun to compare the 2 when its finished.
