JEM7BSB vs JEM7DBK - For the same price, what would you choo
I would like to know what you would do in this case : here where I live (in France), there's a shop that sells both a JEM7BSB and a JEM7DBK for the same price. Both are new.
I don't plan to buy right now, but in a few months (gotta save money first - these are really expensive, here).
Basically I'd like to know what you think is different between the two. I'm not talking about the look : this I can figure out for myself, and I think the BSB looks better, but the DBK is not bad either.
I can see from the Ibanez catalog that the differences are :
- basswood (7DBK) vs american basswood (7BSB)
- super wizard neck vs jem neck
- breed pickups vs evolution pickups
Could you tell me what you think ? Which one would you choose, and why ? (Again, please don't answer about the finish - just the tone and playability/neck...)
Oh, and BTW, what is this 'Lion Claw' you talk about ? Is it the carving under the Lo-Pro Edge that enables you to pull the whammy bar ?
Thanks for your help, guys !
