JEM7DBK vs. JEM7VWH - title typo edited

How does the DBK compare to the VWH? Does the alder on the VWH make that much of diference? Just general comparisons would be great.

Oh, i had hoped to se a custom VBK here, hehehe
In theory, the wood, pickups, neck radius, and finish type(including a thin layer of wood on the VWH) and ebony/rosewood fretboard are the only major things affecting the guitars differences here... *did i forget anything? That is quite a number of differences affecting both tone and playability, i would say that in theory, there is a big difference. :shocked:

Yeah there are some differences. *The main one is that the VWH is flashy, bright and gaudy lookin, as where the DBK looks really cool * *The VWH is a great guitar and everything, but the style is just not for me. *

As far as the other aspects go, I also prefer the Breed pickups on the DBK vs the Evolutions on the VWH. *The neck is nicer on the VWH (jem style, ebony). *As far as the alder goes, I am not too sure. *I can say this though, If the Jem 10, Jem 90HAM, and the Jem 2DKNA are basswood, that cant be all that bad * *

They're very different guitars from the same line... Which is to say that - owning both - I'd be willing to give up neither *They play similarily enough that it's very comfortable to switch between the two, but they sound VERY different...
