The last new one I got before these was an 02' with a Lo Pro. Explain that!

Frankly this upsets me. I was looking into picking up a new 7vwh in a few weeks with no hesitations, but now I think I will be looking for an '03. Rich do you have any '03's in stock?

Why? Prefer ebony? Rosewood's great, you should try it (all the cool guitarists are )

like in the other thread .. i love ebony cause of how it feels, same w/ maple, but more so with ebony. plus, a dark, clean black is so much cooler than a 'meh' looking wooden looking rosewood

personal taste, and it's SSV's that counts most

when i was shoping around for a new guitar awhile back, i came across a NOS jem90th at local mom and pop shop here in OKC. i thought i was looking at a rosewood board because the ebony was so light in color. it just didn't seem as deep and rich like the others i have had. my rggold2 has a darker color board than this jem90 does.

btw, the guitar in question is still for sale at that shop.

Well, I've gotta say I'm disappointed. I guess what stevie wants he gets. I still want an Ibanez with an ebony board.... Kinda wish it was announced earlier. I would've saved, and bought one. As it is I don't have enough money, and that new 2002 w/ lo pro Rich has is looking tempting. But yeah. Not enough money atm.

Has it been sold yet Rich?

wil..

Every VWH I get is always spoken for before I can get it, always on back order

MF still has a new 2002 VWH. I know because I keep checking everyday waiting for them to drop the price (it is 2 years old!), but they don't. It's $1799 w/o case and won't have the "Rich Harris" set-up. But if someone wants a new '02, it's there.

As far as the discussion here - If I bought a 7VWH, I want the ebony! Not for the tone or even feel. I don't mind saying it - for the looks! The contrast of the dark ebony and the white vine is beautiful. That's my two cents!

Here ya go, now you can all complain about how it looks

BTW, take note of the fact there's almost zero fill, because they've tightened up the tollerances on the vine rout to the point it's not needed

Ibanez like to make things difficult don't they. So no more ebony (I want it cause of the way it looks)....But QC has increased ten fold?

I'd rather have ebony over rosewood personally, but the rosewood boards on my FPs were just wonderful; nice looking thick slabs that felt great. Can't wait to play one of these new ones!
