Thanks guys. I was thinking that there was the possibility of it being Lazer Blue with sparkles added but wasn't sure. I still miss tjhat finish Thanks Kirk. Actually, this finish seems much richer. To me, the Jem 7VSBL's real-life color looks more like the printed-catalog verion of LB.
The SBL is much better looking, IMO, than the catalogs or any on-line pictures have shown. I'm very impressed.
The Hardware is wild: The bridge and saddles, knobs, Top Lok nut and the tuning peg heads are a nice, antiqued finish. The rest of the harware: tuning machine pegs and gear housing, screws, Top Lok pressure pads, and the fine-tuning screws are all gloss black. Looks cool to me.
These play great. I still haven't A/B'ed it with my VWH, yet. I haven't had too much time to play since I've had it (I got it Friday 6/14) and I won't be able to play it much until tomorrow evening.
I plan on writing the more detailed hands-on report Thursday afternoon.
