Brand new 2001 Jem7VWH - Gold in Heaven

I just Sold off my RG2027 & RG2020, and Purchased a Brand new 2001 Jem7VWH that just came in to the dealer from Ibanez/Hoshino.

This Jem7VWH is far the best playing and sounding Jem I have experienced. The Craftsmanship is flawless! Two VWH's came in the same day, and out of the box they both were set up just awesome! Both are phenominal, I bought this one and a Good friend got the other.

I felt the VWH needed alittle mod, here is a couple pics of the change.

yeah, I put on the Metal Gold strat knobs and the Anodized Aluminum switch cap,(High Performance) The headstock is so perfect with balance of Gold, white and black, IMO, the knobs and cap bring Balance to the Body area.

Thanks, I think the VWH is the Jem of all Jems, Never payed much attention to them cuz they didn't have wild colors, Then two came in last Monday, and they blew me away with how they play, look and most of all there Sound,,,unreal! We spent 4 hours doing the A/B thing with 10 Ibanez Guitars, VWH is way out ahead in a class of it's own.

Congrats on the new guitar. *I definitely like the guitar better, even with such a slight change. *Something about it just 'works'.

Now if only they'd start making gold whammys. *

Wow! That does look pretty cool. It's amazing what such a subtle change will do. I tried gold speed knobs with abalone on top and did'nt care for it. Are those Fender knobs? --rvj

Thanks everyone, I think the VWH should have came this way, looks so Balanced, IMO....
RVJ, the Volume and Tone knobs are from All Parts, they are metal so they match the bridge, they do make a Gold strat type switch cap, *the slot is to big for the Ibanez switch though, yet it could be filled and made to work.
I took the stock cap and filed it to fit/thread into an *Aluminum Gold Anodized Valve stem cap for a BMX Bike, it's a little larger so it's fast when switching on the fly.

Man the Tone of this Guitar puts me in a Daze, It looks awesome, feels awesome, yet the Tone, wow.............
