I swapped them around in my Jackson (85 in bridge, 81 in neck). To me the 85 is more versatile although it's a little bass heavy (which I like). I have to admit though with the medium gain stuff my...

I personally would rather have an Ibanez that is uniquely Ibanez like the Jem (or an RG, S, etc.) than an Ibanez that is just a copy of the more popular guitar. Just my 2 cents.
