Ibanez JEM 7v. What's holding you back?
Hi guys, I've always been an Ibanez RG player and have always been hovering around JEMS. I do not own a JEM but there is always something about a JEM that's holding me back from a purchase. It's either the timing is not right (as is with the 777's. I was too young back then). Not made in Japan (70V which I love the colour combo but it's MII). 7V (Which I think they got everything right but that gold hardware is just too pretty).
So if I were to pull the trigger on the JEM 7V, what color hardware does Steve use on his EVO? Sometimes it looks like black but sometimes it looks somewhat lighter? Possible for me to order a complete set of hardware (Tuners, Locknuts, Tremolo bridge, Pickguard, backplate screws) in different colors to replace the gold hardware?
