Choosing between a Jem7DBK or a UV777BK - .. which one?

If you had about $1000, would you buy a Jem7DBK or a UV777BK? I already have a 7VWH.

Do you want another 6 or a 7 string? That's the question...

Dacmo,
I've owned a DBK and a UV7BK. The DBK was a fine guitar, a very fine guitar. You can't go wrong with one. But the question about the 7 string is, will you use the 7th string? I didn't. It was more of a novilty than an assett for me. I never incorporated that 7th string into my playing. So the UV went in a trade...

I'd sugest getting your hands on both at a store, if you can. Noodle with the UV for a bit and see if you like the differences and the wider neck. Then check out a DBK. Then decide...

Haven't played the DBK, but on looks alone I would have to go with the UV. *The UV plays wonderfully once set up properly, as I can attest because mine was just set up last night....huge difference.

If the DBK had a vine inlay or something more interesting, it might make the decision a little tougher....but then again, you wouldn't be able to find one for a grand in that case either. *I do dig the finish on it though.

The UV is just a great guitar, plays as well as any six I have ever had plus you get the option to really chug it out on the low B, best of both worlds.

I just wish that the UV had the monkey grip and the claw... then the decision would not be so hard.

I've never played a 7 string before and don't know if I'll even use the low-B string but I do agree that it gives you the option to do so.

I do appreciate all the inputs provided by you guys.

dacmo,
If you've never played a 7 string before, I highly suggest you go to a shop that has one and try it out first. They do have that added option but they are not for everyone...

It looks like it's going to be a DBK after all... just got a used one for a good price... looks to be in good condition. Will update once I receive it.
