Needed some suggestion from u guys....

HI all... i am still new in here and i am currently living in Malaysia now... Planning to get a new rock axe... 2nd hand JEM which sell about US$ 600-700 looks still affortable for me... but since that is so hard to get the price now (cause i am keep searching on ****).. maybe looking for others axe which also nearly same spec with it... actually i damm like the feeling of the JEM neck because it is so thin and make me feel that i can play very smooth on it...(i tried a JEM jr before)..

so, till now i still cant find a 2nd hand JEM with price range US$600-700... any good suggestion on others nice axe ??
JS ?? (i m also keep searching but can really see ppl selling JS1200 worldwide)
RG ??
or watever suggestion ??

any suggestion and opinion are welcome !!!!
Thanks a lot !!!

p.s: sorry that i m using poor english

Hey there ah keat, a jem for 600-700usd are rare but I saw those DBK sold on the bay for around that price once, seriously the jemjr neck is totally not the same as ar real jem's neck (I own a jem77bfp :P) anyway i have it repainted right now and changing out some other stuff,

You can get a good rg 550 for around lesser than that price and they're good guitar

Go for a 550, 570, 520, etc. essentially any japanese rg with the pickup configuration you want and youll be in the zone.

I remember seeing an RGT3120 TV going for $700 a short while ago (either on E*** or here on the Jemsite). Great guitar and a great price!!

Re: Needed some suggestion from u guys....

RG 5XX and 7XX's are essentailly the same performence wise.

Both have Edges, (Lo-pro depending on year) both came with Maple or Rosewood boards, both Wizard Necks.

The 7XX just ahve sharkfin inlays and sometimes a clear pickguard like a UVMC.
