2004 jem 7vwh fretboard
I just bought a jem 7vwh from rich, but to my surprise, as well as his, the fretboard for the 2004 model is rosewood, not ebony like the 2003 model. I'm trying to decide if I should still get it (he hasn't sent it yet) or look for a used one with an ebony fretboard
I'm wondering, has it been ebony fretboard on the 7vwh from the beginning till now, or was there a time when it was rosewood too? I'd like to know what you guys think are the advantages/disadvantages to each in terms of both sound and appearance...it'd be nice to see a pic of a jem 7vwh with a rosewood fretboard, but I think the one on the ibanez website is ebony (I think it's a pic of last years model).
Anyways, any thoughts or opinions would be appreciated.
