The White JEM7VP seems to sound better to me than the JEM70V

Funny except for the ebony fret board the Seafoam Green JEM70V one and the White JEM7VP one are almost identical.
However (FYI everyone) even though they both have the Evolution pups the White JEM 7VP sounds better to me.
The JEM7VP has "more body" than the JEM 70V. Whatever that means, I guess I mean more low mid.
Evolution pickups are awesome !

I've always noticed the exact same type of difference between my RG's and my JEM, and the only thing I can think of is that I took off the pickguard and direct mounted the pickups to the body. Definitely thicker sounding and I would have tried the same with other guitars but it required me to drill out the pickup mounting holes in order to make a large enough hole for the skinniest wood screws I was able to find.

Well, they have different body. 70V has American Basswood, 7VP Alder.

You are right, maybe that's why the 7VP sounds better. That's neat.

There's a new demon in the house that likes to taunt the others.
