Jem7VWH 2006 help!
as per my previous post, I went today to see the used 2006 Jem 7VWH, inspected it, played it and compared it with a new 2008 Jem that the store has in stock.
I found this difference:
- in the back of the headstock the 2006 has the 'Made by team JCraft' and the serial number graphic only, whereas the 2008 has got this one and the other 'CE compliance' graphic too. So 2006 only one graphic, 2008 has two graphics.(See this pic: on ibanezrules, pics for the real jem, nr 2014, can't post the direct link on here)
Is this supposed to be like that in the 2006 model?
-in the box there are only 3 allen keys and a spring, is there something else missing?
Upon playing both guitars, the 2008 felt way better, the neck felt better, the sound clearer and richer, I was kind of disappointed by the 2006's sound.
Let's say that if I had the choice, I would buy the 2008, but it's too pricey.
The 2006 is almost mint, just some colour lost in 3 screws of the pickguard, they look silverish with traces of gold, I guess from the use?
The store will put on new strings and I'll go see it again in some days to see if this makes an overall improvement.
I wasn't expecting to find such a difference in the sound, any comments on this? Why could it be? It's not that bad, it's just that the 08's sound is superior and feels better...or am I nutts?
Your input is welcome,
