Talking Need some advice.

Hey Jemsiters.
I wold like to buy a new guitar.
so I thought i might ask for some advice.
I nearly have enough money for an Ibanez RG350ex but i want a jem 7vwh as well.
I started playing the guitar about three months ago and i have a Peavey Raptor Plus.Should i buy the RG or should i wait for a couple of years and get the jem?

Thanks for the advice.

If you want to wait that long then yeah, I'd get the VWH.

Re: Need some advice.

I would agree with Flo.

RG350EX is too much of a starter guitar, and you seem to have your sights on being the next Steve Vai. You already have another starter, so just wait. In the meantime, if you get the chance ($) to upgrade your Raptor Plus (add another Plus, for example), you will eventually have a couple of really good ones.
