Re: JEM7DBK - Underrated???
I've had my 7DBK for about a month now and can honestly say it is THE guitar for me. No question about it. I name all my guitars and this one's name is Anvil. It's a rare thing when I bond with any guitar but I bonded with Anvil from the first day I picked it up at the store. It has meant the end of over 20 years of searching for this kind of bond with a guitar.
I also have a 7VWH and while I appreciate the artistry of the inlays and the tone of the alder with the Evo's, I just don't communicate the same way through that guitar as I do through Anvil. All my guitars have different purposes for recording and live play, and even now I'd never give any of them up, but I can tell already that the bulk of my solos I record in the future will be done with Anvil.
I'm also not one for owning two of the same guitar, but when the time comes to hit the road I will definitely be buying at least one,(maybe two) more of these. Of course, I'll do some mods with the pickups and cosmetics to make each one a bit unique. However, I absolutely want the same feel when I need to switch to a second.
