Worth Selling my VSBL Jem for a new 2008 J Custom?

Just seeing what you all think. I really like the look of the new 2008 RG8470Z Red Spindel.

hahaha It is an amazing guitar. I could probably get the J-custom and still have money after selling the JEM 7VSBL

That J Custom is absolutely beautiful but so is the VSBL, i've always liked those. I'd have both.

Find out what you think of the new Edge zero trem before letting go of a classic JEM.

VSBL - no longer in production.

08 J custom - 08 J custom

My Vsbl is one of the best playing guitars I've ever owned and the tone is so.......awesomely Vsblish

Lol....look at the big picture before you make a decision. Collector Jems = $ and regardless of what the haters say, the Vsbl has entered into the realm of collectability Plus they play and sound SOOOO NICE!!!! Many a Jem collector are drooling over this thread as I type this text

VSBL (especially the 02 models) arent easy to get these days, where as the 08 J customs are....(duh)

Uh oh......they are knocking at my door already.....nice knowing you guys..........

......

You're lucky to have the chance for either!

Keep the JEM, save for the J-custom, or sell some other gear.

Oh my word!

What's wrong with the VSBL? I think it's an awsome guitar.
Will be a lot harder to find one if he regrets his decision aswell.

I would keep the VSBL and save up for the j.custom if you REALLY want it.

Sure... two axes is better than one!!!

But if *I* had to choose, *I'd* go for the J-Custom without thinking.
(I really do not like the VSBL.)
