Sending my RG for a swirl makeover
I don't think you should buy a Jem or UV either if ther're not exactly what you want. *
The bottom line is this,
How much do you like your guitar, there is nothing wrong with having a $2000 K-mart special if it is what you love (OK, maybe a little wrong) but still, If it's what you love, you do to it what you really want to do.
I know a couple guys who buy Les Pauls because Ace Frehley plays them, or guys who buy Jems because Steve Vai plays them and they really don't like the guitars playability. *
I see you've got your guitar in the for sale section anyway, so it seems to me it's probably not a guitar that feels perfect to you anyway.
That being the case, go out and play every guitar you can, then decide what you want to buy, who knows, you may decide that $1000+ for a JEM doesn't make sense to you.
Good luck with whatever you decide man!!!
