If you want to play a lot of guitar solos with beautiful smooth tone, buy a 7vwh.
If you want to play a lot of riffage like metallica, with some solo's scattered in, buy a dbk....its a better fit and sounds a bit tighter for that type of music. The neck is also thinner which makes it easier to play power chords.
The 7vwh is the perfect screaming soloing guitar. But not everyone plays ala Steve Vai. If you want to play lincoln park, forget the 7vwh.
Good luck, let us know the route you decide to take.
Thanks for the reply man. You also have a good point. Which ever guitar I buy, I will be playing it, I wont be looking at it. However, I dont play "hard". In other words, I dont gig, and my equipment NEVER leaves my house. I take great pride in my gear, and every Monday, I set aside 2 hours or so, and polish all of it. As far as guitars, I have an RG270
, an RG 570, an RG 620X,an Agile LP, a PRS CU 24-10 top, and a Takamine EF 341C. As far as amps, I have a 1992 "block lettered" 5150, with the matching 5150 slanted cab, an ENGL Powerball which go to 2 cabs, a Mesa 4x12, and an Avatar loaded with Sheffeild 1200 series speakers (same as in 5150 cabs). Digitech GNX3, BBE sonic maximizer, and 9 Boss pedals. So you see, I have alot of cleaning to do.
But anyhow, I am not hard on my equipment at all. I have all of that gear on a spare room in my house, just for fun. I am what they call "a bedroom wanker".
Now, I am fairly sure that I will be getting the JEM7VWH, it is the one I have always dreamed of. However, I like the neck on my RG620 the best, I *think* its the "wizard". But I dont mind the necl on the VWH at all. Now all I have to do is wait until Rich gets his shipment in.....Ugh!!! I hate the wait, and antisipation!!!!! Thanks guys
