ibanez RG/JEM vs. charvel model

Which of these shred machines do you prefer and why? I've tried the charvel model guitars but never owned one. they play just as great as ibanez jems or RG's but just differently.

RG---Jem---Charvel in that order.

It all boils down to the neck profile. '87 -92 RG's for me were best
(excluding the mighty J Customs of course) but that original Wizard
profile is still to be bettered for me. Jems I've never really bonded
with because of the neck profile barring the 3 or 4 (???) that sported the
original Wizard profile. I've owned piles of Jackson/Charvel models. Damn good
guitars. I prefer older J/C models as that's when I thought the necks were more shreddy.
Comes down to personal preference really but I like super thin necks so Ibanez RG is the
obvious choice and that's not to say Jackson Soloist's, Charvel 750XL etc aren't as good
a guitar.

Re: ibanez RG/JEM vs. charvel model

All of those guitars play wonderfully, as ever this kind of question comes down to personal preference but here's my 2c: super wizards are my favourite necks, and some RGs have those. Jems are fantastic all-rounders with thin, comfortable necks and I'm a Vai fanboy. Charvels play just as well as any other brand you care to mention, but I don't like original floyd roses.

My list of preferences would be as follows: J Custom RG > Jem > RG > Charvel

Caveat: if any of the ibbys in question have a bridge other than an Edge, or Lo Pro, I'd opt for the Charvel.
