JEM 7VWH or UV 7PBK... - Do I prefer my mom or my dad ?

hello everybody...

here is the question part of you must have encountered...
Right now I have a JEM 777 VBK and a 555 all black with a lo pro edge...

and now I have the possibility to trade both for either a JEM 7VBK or a Universe 7PBK...
My god
they're both gorgeous... they sound different...
If I take a UV I'm affraid the 7th string might become more a handicap (I like some 7 strings stuffs like dream theater but I hate KoRn and all the "neo-metal" stuffs...)
I could trade the 777VBK and some more cash for the UV and keep my 555 for 6 strings guitar... (I know you all hate and scorn the 555 but I like the Di-Marzio and mine was rererouted for a lo pro edge and I never got any problems with it)
or I could get a 7VWH... (back to the beginning )
they're both so....

so last question : are there any problems playing on a 7 strings guitar ? (I have quite large hands so the bigger neck won't be a problem... but the 7th string could be... or not...)

voila

marc

Get the 7VWH if you have any doubts about the UV....I have one of each, and they both rock, but I prefer the VWH...

dont waste your time on a needless 7 string

get the prestige rgt3120

and if you dont want that, which is the only ibanez ill ever recommend, get a jem, universes cant touch jems

problem solved...
I tried a UV today and I don't like the 7th string stuff... (the one a I tried had a quite light low B but anyway it was more annoying than anything else to me... and the wider neck didn't please me that much...)
so in about 2 weeks I'll have to make some room for a new real shiny white roomate...

thanks to ppl who answered me

Good choice. Let me know what kind of action and set up you get out of your new 7V.

Also, your 555 has a Lo Pro? I was going to do that to mine too. It is a killer sounding guitar but it could play better.

(ha my 555th post too!)

All a matter of taste, I'd not say a jem is better than a universe or vice versa. And to be honest, I really don't think that the 7th string is useless. Depends on how you look at it. UV's aren't to everyone's tastes.

Anyway, Babook, have fun with your new roommate! Good guitar in a good home!

Lol.... the curse filter bleeped my turn-of-phrase c-o-c-k-s, which was meant as in to turn slightly, not the er... physical attribution, heh. Funny stuff.
