Thanks guys. Now I've had chance to play it through an amp I'm even more impressed. In some ways I wish I'd bought a Jem years ago, SO much easier to play than any of my other guitars...but then, I probably wouldn't be able to justify getting a gorgeous VSBL if I already had a Jem so I'm kinda glad I didn't too
Hey Mike, lets not boost the VSBL's rep too much eh, we don't want everyone to have one
As far as the frets and scalloping go I have nothing to compare it against, never having played a Jem for more than a few minutes in a guitar shop. All I can say is that the workmanship is outstanding on all counts.
I could go on for ages about how nice it is...how easy it is to get around the neck, how much the LoPro kicks the ass of a Floyd, and the sound...damn, I love the way it sqeuals through a Marshall! But I guess you guys have all been there before...
Suffice to say I am one happy geeza
(I'll try and get some gallery pics together as well, I'm sure I can lay my hands on a digi camera somewhere)
