My Jem DNA 285/300



EDIT: wait, I thought I was meant to pick one from my own collection from my entire guitar playing life...

Ummm, not sure what I'd pick if I could pick any guitar in the world.

Hmm... tough call to make here. For me it would have to be a J Custom. Probably the JCRG Art:

Re: If only one Guitar !!! Which One ??

I'm inclined to say JCRG too, but they're so beautiful you don't feel like playing or gigging them all the time. I would rather have a killer guitar as far as playability goes so I'm going to have to say, this '87 RG550 (which I own, fortunately ):



And I would buy another RG from the 80's in a heartbeat.

I guess it would be the SynthAxe. Very hard to play, both halves of your brain at work !! Deadly in the right hands, awful in the wrong ones.
God Bless the 80's.

Re: If only one Guitar !!! Which One ??

^It looks as though the frets do not change in size at all, that would be horrible

If I was in this kind of position I'd have to judge my guitar on 2 criteria:

1)Bling-yness
2)Shred-yness

With chugginess and clean sound coming right under.



If money was not an issue it would be between a custom-shop version of this and a not-purple E-Gen.
(And I forgot, a six string RC model would also be a big contender! Though unfortunatly it isn't nearly as blingin', so that might not be the best option.)

Is it just me or is the overall shape of it (Particularly on the top) seem a little off? And the neck pickup is not slanted, so that would indicate the cutaway is not as big...

Re: If only one Guitar !!! Which One ??

If we're talking electric rock guitars, I'm not sure between my JEM10 and my JS10, decisions, decisions.

If I'm a little more mature when I have to make the call, I'm looking for a friend called Benny.

Re: If only one Guitar !!! Which One ??

If I could only have one it would have to be a Benedetto Manhattan, preferably in Claret Red
