Hello Jem 7VWH

Sold off one of my 7's to get this puppy...should have it tomorrow provided it isn't thrashed. This will be my first Jem...I had a UV777BK that I sold. Getting the UV felt great but I never connected to that guitar...I hope the Jem will inspire a different feeling. I am certainly drawn to the VWH more than any other guitar and I'm just happy that I can finally own one. I can't wait to experience the Evolutions through my Marshall.

If you aren't pleased, you are definitely a different breed... it's the smoothest playing guitar I've ever laid my greasy little nubs on.
Congrats though, You'll be happy : D

I just picked it up and took it home. It's a 94 so it's been around the block. The guy I bought it from has a Masters in Jazz Performance so he's played the poo out of it. Frets were nice though, a few dings in the body, very minor stuff, but the trem shows the wear the worst. Doesn't bother me cuz this was bought to be played A LOT. It needs a thorough cleaning from stem to stern and a fresh setup. Overall a good deal.

I paid $900 with the original pink-lined case in good shape. I tore her down to brass tacks and clean everything, rewired with a new five way switch, a new set of elixer strings and it looks basically new, except for the trem.

I had rehearsal sunday and really got to run her through my marshall and actually open it up. This guitar was made for that amp. Holy crap did it sound nice. The evolutions are incredible and extemely responsive and what really impressed me were the clean tones I can get with this guitar-amp combination.

My wife commented that this would be the guitar that Jesus would play.

Why wouldn't Jesus want to play it, when God already does?

Congrats on the 7VWH!!! All those hours of being played will give it a nice comfortable worn in feel. My two favorite Jems are both second hand players, and they're fantastic. Enjoy.

The VWH does appear to be sent down from above, plays like buttah, sings like no other, and responds to every nuance - I think I'll keep mine around for a while - Enjoy!

i sold all my other guitars and only kept the 7vwh. it was made for me! i have not played anything better that suits me yet. it's a 2000 and i'm the original owner. i have owned 2 other 7vwh's and sold them within a couple months..... SAME GUITAR but DIFFERENT FEEL. it was weird. it's like the connection steve has with EVO. i have not played a better 7vwh yet than my main one. weird.

congrats dude!

Congrats Gresh!

I'm not sure what Jesus plays, but if the VWH is imported to valhalla I'm sure Elvis has got one.
