Btw, I'm listening to Yngwie's Rising Force right now. Too much own.
Return your 1570 for full $$$ because you can probably get full return for it.

But sell the RG370 on that certain auction site.

With the scalloped frets as a nice touch, you could get $300 for it easy, maybe you could get them to pay you the money for shipping on top of that.

Re: Rg to Jem? Should?

I'd get the JEM or the RG before the bike though

Re: Rg to Jem? Should?

Like Lance said "its not about the bike"
in this case, its not about the axe - RG's are great guitars, no-one here will tell you otherwise...
A well set-up RG is a joy to play,... enojy it ... or if you go for the JEM - enjoy that also......

Re: Rg to Jem? Should?

Okay, heres what I want to do. Return my RG1570, Trade in my Rg370 for about 100 (if im lucky), and get a job. In about 6-8 weeks, I can get a JEM.

Trade it in when you buy the JEM, just keep it in good nick.

Re: Rg to Jem? Should?

An RG with Di Marzio is completely comparable to a jem, features and soundwise. The playability will be slightly different since the neck profile is different, but that the only notable difference (and its not that the jem is better, it just has a different neck profile).

So, if its playability and sound that you are looking for, keep the RG and buy 3 Di Marzios.

Re: Rg to Jem? Should?

Jem vs. RG.....same old story.

If you are wetting yourself for a Jem.....play the RG and save up for a Jem. Cause if you have the hots for a Jem, no RG will ever do.

If you just want a great guitar.....get the RG. No frills of the Jem will ever make it soooo much better then the RG. Unless you want the Alder body and the slightly better fretdress of the Jem.

Re: Rg to Jem? Should?

Have you played a Jem?

Try and find one first and play it then decide really how much better than your RG it is.

What do you guys think about this?
The RG is a great guitar, yet the JEM is the full guitar experience, Tone, Feel, character & personality.

It's a lot of fun to run the race for JEM money.

You're right, and actually I messaged him about it earlier. Thing is, why put a pic like that on your website? It's not too encouraging.
