im a chinese.. n i live in malaysia.. i played the classical guitar for a year... n currently changed to electric guitar...

after 4 months of practise... i decided to change a guitar due to the poor quality of my "viking" guitar... n luckily..i scored well in my government test... so my dad gave me RM2000 as my reward.. plus the 500 of my own... i got RM2500 in total... now here come the question... my guitar teacher recommend me 2 guitars for my budget... both ibanez guitar.. one is the rg350dx , which cost me rm1450 ... and another one is the JEM-JR....er.. slightly higher price.. rm 1750


i play almost all music genre *except metal music*.. n...yea im a big fan of steve vai... so i would like to play alot of songs of steve wit my future guitar... im oso a big blues fan... im currently addicted to srv music.... for band songs.. i like rhcp the most...

the problem i worry the most is.. sum ppl out there said that the JEM-JR is a fake jem... thats freak me out a little bit... but i check on the official website on ibanez n Jem-Jr do appear on the page of signature guitar of steve vai.. dat make me confuse..

a friend of mine own rg350dx... n i do agree dat it"s a nice guitar.. but it weight too heavy for me.. im a skinny guy n yea.. for me jem-jr do look better den rg350dx..but when it come to quality of the guitar.. im totally blur.. so pls gimme sum advice on it....

so which guitar shud i choose?? i hav to be extremely careful becoz im nt a rich kid... this is probably my last guitar... n any recommendation for amp below the price of RM700 is accepttable

THX ALOT GUYS

Check out the one you're going to buy, and really mess with the tremolo. Lower-priced guitars usually have crappy quality tremolos. As for whether or not it's real, if it's quality-- and I mean in sound and playability-- who cares. Other than the fact that you might be overpaying just for a name, if it feels good, it is good. Seeing as you're in Malaysia, you might have a different selection of guitars/guitar brands, check them all out and look for the specs that you want.
In the end, when you have something playable, put more cash down on a killer amp instead. Maybe even save up for a good dictionary and grammar book.
