I'm in the market for a widdly machine.
Looking at the current Ibanez options there seems to be a bit of a cross-over in price between the Prestige and Premium lines. The lower cost Japanese built ones appear to be plainer choices, while the higher cost Premiums are a bit flashier, in top and colour options.
So how comparable is the quality?
The Prestige RG2550 is about £1100, and so is the Premium blue floral Jem.
As much as I love the Jem (lusting after it like a teenage Vai fanboy tbh), is the RG2550 actually a better guitar?
