Okay, so there have been a few JEM7Vs in the past. The most obvious are the VWH and the mirrored JEM.
Because the VWH has been the JEM7V for a long time, sooner or later it's going ot be replaced by a NEW JEM7V (even thought the VWH looks great).
So, if the new JEM7V was released next year, what would YOU want it to look like?
This one's modelled off the Bad Horsie guitar, but not quite the same as it.
And this one's modelled off the "Kandy Red JEM" built by a Jemsite member (yes, that guitar impressed me so much I am putting it up for the next JEM7V). The grey parts are meant to be chrome/mirrored. I love it because it is elegant but crazy at the same time.
This one's modelled off a once-off guitar Vai used called "Red Lace".
One of my ideas:
I came up with this myself after looking at the JEM777LNG. All I did was reverse the green with the black. Could do well as the next JEM7V if Vai wishes to return to the out-there style of guitar.
This one I did myself completely with no other inspiration. It would suit Vai's current liking for elegance in his instruments.
Thoughts? Opinions? And of course, your ideas for the next JEM7V?
