Is it really that simple?

I got an RG1070 Premium when I decided to pick up my guitar playing again. I loved it so much I decided to get a second RG but to go for a Prestige. I tried a few prestiges in the store an RG3770 among them and I loved them but I couldn't figure out what made the 3770 almost $1000 better.

Same pickups, equally good finish and same snug fit on everything. I loved the Prestige neck but I kind of prefer the neck on my Premium. The 11pcs wenge neck looks amazing and feels even better and the fret ends are filed to spheres. I have no issues with buzzing frets with a bit lower action then the factory "specs" so with my limited experience that seems like its ok too.

Not trying to start any discussion on MII vs MIJ, just trying to figure out why I should spend $1000 more on an MIJ :)

I love the Prestige necks on all the Ibanez guitars I've had. My favorite was on my Gilbert I used to have. They are rock solid and stable if you have to travel.
