A quick way to get that feeling is to refret w/stainless and have it Plek'd. That process is 1000% worth the cost, I'm going to do it on the 20xx I just bought.Slightly OT, but I was in Guitar Center over the weekend and picked up a couple Prestige RG's in the platinum room. I was blown the fuck away. They felt like they were built like tanks, flawless finish and fretwork. I've played dozens of MIJ JEM's and RG's over the years, but never felt one that felt as sturdy and finished as well as these were. I didn't pay attention to the model numbers, one had Fishman's and the other had Bareknuckle's.
I wish my JEM felt like one of those guitars. I had kind of given up on the idea of buying a newer Ibanez for quite some time, but after playing those two guitars, my opinion has certainly changed.
