This is a topic that's more or less geared toward owners of multiple Jems.
What's your fav? What makes it your fav? Is it the color, swirl, feel, or tone that makes it your fav?
I have to be totally honest... I own a DNA, UVMC, VWH, DY, PBK, and a 90th. The best sounding Jem is by far the DY. It's tone is simply killer. I can get tones out of that particular guitar that completely blow away all my other Jems, including my super expensive DNA. Maybe the PAF's and maple fretboard are the reason for the tone. My PBK has the PAF's and it sounds pretty good, but it does'nt sound quite as nice as the DY.
Playability: The DNA and the 90th are the easiest to play. I contribute this to the thinner neck and the aanj. The PBK is also very easy to play, until I slam into that bulky neck joint. I love playing the 90th, but it's tone is a bit muddy. I have to make major adjustments to my rig. The DNA never gets played mainly because I'm afraid to touch it. The few times I did play it though, it feels like butter. It's the nicest feeling Jem I own, and I still have'nt plugged it it to my set-up.
Looks: The DNA is stunning, but I feel the inlays are a little plain. Sure, it glows under a black light... but who really gives a [email protected]
#%. The VWH is a beautiful guitar period, and the 90th is also a visually stunning guitar.
These are just my personal observations and I don't mean to insult anyone. I'm just looking to start an interesting thread that all of can benefit from. So... share your thoughts.
