Exclamation Re: Help VERY VERY CONFUSED

According to the Japanese website, there are only two left for 2006 (no JC7 anymore ) that's not what I call choice...

the simple RG8320 (biker black /w EMGs)
and the more elaborate RG8470F (three colors, flame+vine)



there could be some japanse dealer specials coming, but I doubt they will show up in the UK.

If Mylo's still selling and you have got the money, then imho this is probably the best j-custom you'll get your hands on

Re: Help VERY VERY CONFUSED

Does it have to be a J-custom? I'd HIGHLY recommend a Prestige RG3270M. There has been some posts with images of it.. http://www.jemsite.com/forums/showthread.php?t=47020

I bought one of these from Ishibashi recently and I love it. I even think it plays as well, if not better, than my Jem7VWH. I do think the neck is slightly wider, or maybe the maple fretboard makes it look that way. Either way it's an extremely versatile guitar and I think you can get it for around 1095 from GAK or some other UK distributors.

Re: Help VERY VERY CONFUSED

Buying NEW in the UK with a budget of 1200 you only have the choice of ONE J Custom - the RG8570....................... The highest spec Prestige model in your price range is the RG3270. Check em both out and see which you prefer. Don't delay though coz not many new ones are left !!

Re: Help VERY VERY CONFUSED

Where abouts in the UK are you?

If you're up north make time for a trip to Sounds Great (near Manchester Airport) They've got a few nice high end RG's in including one of the black & white swirls.

If your down south check out Machinehead in Hitchin or Coda in Stevenage

Re: Help VERY VERY CONFUSED

Save your money and invest in a custom to be honest.

Check out organic guitars or blackmachine, there's many more brands (dissasociative 1 may see this post and tell you some more) to look at but these are 2 I personally like.

I saved up lots and bought my Jem, but if I was in the same situation again I would choose a custom.
