Re: J custom Vs prestige models
How do you answer this question? It's impossible for most of us because it takes having one in your hands.
Five years of being a serious guitar player and an Ibanez owner-- buying and learning about guitars, learning how to play, posting on the forums-- and I have yet to see a J-Custom in person. I know that they recently became more available here in the States, but c'mon, the market is so small it's served by two or three dealers and a handful of sales from Japanese shops that risk reprisal for shipping internationally.
I'd really love to answer this question for myself--but the only guitars in the price range that have a decent selection, day in, day out, are Gibson Customs, Fender Custom Shops, PRS.
