Mrthingyx, never said there was anything wrong with a VW, I just know what I like. *hehe :biggrin: *that's ok, some guys here obviously don't have any idea about the reliability of Ferrari engines and cars. *
*But whacha gonna do. *I'm the first to admit that a VW with 400,000 miles on it will probably still last a good while longer and a Ferrari with 100,000 on it is going to be incredibly expensive, but then, who is going to put that many miles on a Ferrari anyway?! *OK, I would, they were built to be driven, to store a Ferrari and never drive it is like buying a DNA and never playing it. *
It's all apples and oranges, that's all. *Same with the 555 vs a 7VWH.
I doubt anyone here would argue that the 555 is the worse guitar, and yeah, for the money, you're further ahead to buy an edge equipped RG5xx or better, but at the same time, if you want the Jem body, and the Evos, the 555 really isn't a horrible guitar. *Yeah, I hate the TRS, but that can be changed for a couple hundred bucks anyway if you really want. *You know, I had a JS100 with *TRS trem, and even though I didn't like the trem, it wasn't all bad. *True, it's nowhere near edge standards, but it's a hell of a lot better than some other brands out there too.
But, I still think the VWH is the way to go. *
And, I still think Ferrari is the only way to go!!!!
