Hi, I've got a bit of a question with two different types of series of guitars. What is the difference between prestige guitars and premium guitars? Furthermore why is one better than the other? Thanks I mean in my point of view it seems that the prestige is for some reason, but I don't quiet understand the differences.

Re: Differences?

Prestige's are made in Japan and use better hardware and have higher standards in the quality control department.

Less features and more quality. The Premiums are a the opposite. More features and less quality.

But the Premiums are kick ass too. No doubt about it.

Except for the Premium Jem--which uses the same great hardware found on the MIJ versions.
