Re: I need your help!! (Jem Contest Loser)
Wow..... a lot of my friends in Facebook (who're guitarists as well) say The Vine...... but everyone on the Jemsite, barring 1 or 2, in this thread says Pyramids. LOL
What to do?... I guess I'll give it some more time to decide. I have a month or so anyway.
Jimquiosis - I went with a maple fretboard on this guitar when I designed it for the competition because I'm sick to death of dark wood fretboards. My 7VWh has it, My les Paul has it, in fact, no guitar I've ever owned has had a maple fretboard and I really really love them. There's no way on earth that this guitar will get an ebony or rosewood fretboard. Gotta have maple this time..... and I also love that "dirty" used look they get over time. Sex on a stick.
NOTE: do you think that this being the Jemsite, and a hell of a lot of Jems being put on show here, has people sort of sick of vines all together? So it might be a biased opinion. If you were Joe Public watching a band with this guitar in it, which one would blow you away more out of the two? (most people that come to our gigs come and look at the old 7VWh (but still sexy) and revere its vine inlay, of all things. Though in here, a vine is kinda "meh"..... but only in here.
