I have had most PRS models by this stage. Sold some recently. Most PRS have very fat necks, really the opposite to Ibanez. The PRS Custom 24 with thin neck would be the closest to the Ibanez. Build quality is superb alright with PRS, the HFS pickups in the PRS are not the best for me and most people, they are very throaty. Really a set of Seymours would be the best choice. But PRS only use the best of the best with materials. You can lower the action as low as you want on a PRS. Amazing quality.
Definately better than the Jems, but the J Customs take a lot of beating. A carved maple top would be the only thing i would like to see on them, and back to the Edge Pro please.
I guarantee that the Jems that Ibanez build for Vai himself would be of J Custom standard, not the stock Jems available to buy.
