700 pounds for a 2550? Nice pickup.

Having read much about inconsistent quality of 70v's I'd get a used 7VWH if I were you.

Re: I cant decide

I did, actually! One of my clients brought it to me for a setup. I didn't think there were any in my area, either.

Though I still dislike the Jem neck profile.

I'd get that and don't look back. If you don't, you'll just be wishing you had.
So youve played it already?

Yup these seem to be the "entry level" Jem as great prices can be found on these pretty regularly. I finally got to play one of these and I loved it, just a sweet playing neck and I love the look...

Re: I cant decide

With patience you'll find a decent Jem for the right price but there's no telling how long - been there, done that.

All depends upon your needs but a Premium set up right, with a bit of care (action, fret and board conditioning, neck shim, decent strings, trem) is gonna give you a lot of pleasure... All that stuff you can do yourself to save money so I'd look for a good deal on a 70V.
