So I wanna buy a new guitar , help me out here.
 
Hi guys,

I think about selling my Jem 7DBK for another guitar close to the 1500 $ line. I was thinking about an Ibanez S5470

http://www.ibanez.co.jp/products/eg_...1&series_id=59

But I dont know where to look for other ones. The Prestige Rg's are a bit too expensive and I dont know if these guitars are equal or better then my jem. ( Can any of you guys help me on this subject ? )

If anyone here got another guitar that's in that price range pls post it.

I want a :

-24 fret
- Good Good tremelo system. ( I dont want any strings to break easily, good adjustment, stays in tune )


I also wanted to know if any of you have expierience with the guitar mentioned above ? How is this new tremolo system ( I never played it , only the old system on my Jem and JCRG 5-VV )

Thx for the input !

I personally find that S Prestige to be a delicious guitar- 24 frets, S contour body, mahogany tone, ZR bridge- LOTS of selling features.

Try to see if you can score a pre-Edge Zero RGT Prestige. For $1500 though, you could get an RG2570 and put in a set of pups of your choice. In terms of quality, that axe would be on par with your JEM. Then again, that S is more different from your JEM and if you're looking for change, I'd suggest that S. ;)

If you're selling a Jem, you may want to consider something entirely different. Like the Andy Timmons AT300 I believe Rich has em.

That's a little out of the $1500 price range. The AT300 will probably be over $2000 - but worth it!

I'd try to find a used Prestige RG or J-Custom if you want really high-end. I think SOME of the new Prestige RG's are in that range, aren't they? If you just want an S-Series, I'd say you're already on the right track.

Those trems on both that RG and S are a no go or are they as good as the 7dbk's trem ?

For tuning stability:

ZR (S) > Edge Pro (DBK) > Edge Zero (2008 RG Series)

ZR = Edge Pro w/ Locking Studs > Edge Zero

For sound:

Edge Pro > ZR > Edge Zero

IMO, Edge Zero looses on all counts. Best bet would be to find a mint used RG Prestige or J-Custom.

why do you want to do that? You already have 24 frets, good trem and pickups. Unless you want to go totally different type, wood, pickups etc.
