I'm going to guess a DBK. But I am not sure, maybe send me the money and I'll find out....

It totally depends on the condition. I would guess a VWH in beat up condition, only becase there are just flat out sooo many of them.

Yeah the 7VWH is awesome 2 play! Plays like a dream! Thanks to everyone who replied! So either a 7VWH not in mint condition, a 7DBK or a 777DY would be my best bet? I quite like the 777VBK aswell, the black and green goes well! Infact I don't think thers a Jem I don't like! So which ever one I see for cheaper I'll get it! Thanks for your help!

Post your price range and maybe consider a non-JEM or something like a modified RG model. I've made/sold several to happy players for under $1200US like this:

I've seen BSBs in the region of £450! So I'd say BSB...

LOL, actually they were spec guitars and the first was a Herc Fede 570 body from *bay and the neck I had already. Second one was another *bay body and parts from a 2570 that I bought specifically to piecemeal for other projects. I have lots of fun with it and have several projects in the shop right now waiting for finishing touches. I am not afraid to attack a Prestige either and the new owner loved this one
