Pure ice cream, some will like the look of a Floral more and like the Paf's better, the majority will probably step up for the VWH. Either way they'll play equally as well. After that it's what flavor ice cream you prefer.

I have both. I love them equally and honestly can't say which one is 'better'.

Some ideas for you:
[*]The FP is an all rounder which has better clean tone and more warmth;[*]For lead, The VWH sounds a lot thicker, has better sustain and more low end. IMHO it produces the ultimate lead tone. I didn't like its tone at first and thought it was too 'loud' and 'harsh' (I'm from the old school ). In order to get an acceptable tone, I always had to turn the volume switch (on my VWH) way down. It was annoying! Oh well... But I believe once you get used to it, there's no turning back.[*]The VWH has AANJ;

My 2 cents.

the Jem 7 VWH is very very nice. (simply great...) I'd never buy a 77fp myself. (I know someone who's got 2 and he sucks). Get the flowerjem now and a 7vwh the next time you got money to burn...

I wish I could help! But, seeing as those are two of my dream JEM's, I really want them both equally. Hard to be objective! Both are terrific guitars. The FP is perhaps a little more "old skool" and the 7V is more modern. The best of both worlds, I'd say!

Hey tanks you all for your advices, i probebly buy the floral cause i love clean sounds and i don't want a relly loud tone.
but i still have doubts because everybody here says that the 7vwh is the best jem (exept the jem10) is that true?
Tanks i relly enjoy the website

If you use a lot of clean sounds, then I'd say the FP should be a better choice. You simply can't beat the combination of PAF Pro pups and basswood! I still reach for my FP whenever I want to play clean. But for lead, it's the other way around.

You won't be disappointed with either. They're equally good. I also think the floral pattern looks kinda cool! And the pink pups!
