Which is better? J-custom Vs. Prestige

Okay, Now I know this has been discussed before and is very subjective, but I'm too lazy and really want to know, both objectively, AND subjectively, and on paper - which is best, this mainly concerns the RG's but S's count too!

Having a J-Custom and having owned several Prestiges, no question, the J-Custom is better. Better quality materials, construction and finishing. That said, the Prestiges are great guitars IMO.

No need to keep on suffering that GAS attack. Just buy one of those J Customs, you won't regret it!!!

Re: Which is better? J-custom Vs. Prestige

There's little difference between a Platinum package Prestige and a J Custom. No flame maple neck binding but i have never liked it, it gets dirty and turns very dark [and looks like crap] all too fast.

I think J Customs come in more interesting finishes then the prestige, but then again I only go for the interesting finishes anways... I love my J Custom's Plus it has the word Custom in it. Prestige somehow sounds like my grandma plays them !! :P

That may be the strangest reason to rank one guitar above another I've ever heard.

Lol, I actually thought that was a kinda funny parallel, they both kick but tho!



Okay, heres another question (while staying on the same topic)

Do ANY ibanez's have a sustainer, it does not mateer, fernandes, sustainiac or otherwise, I'm kinda bummed if ibanes dose'nt, them would meant thats one thing jacksons would have a one up, and i dont really want that lol. (even though the one I tried actually felt kinda nice!)

Re: Which is better? J-custom Vs. Prestige

Take the what Rich said as truth. Also, be aware that J Customs are mahogany. There's nothing inherintly wrong with mahogany, its just that this is completely different than almost every other RG-type guitar. Old Jems, PGMs, JPM, RG500 and RG700 line -- all basswood. I'd rather have one of these than a J Custom.
