Jem90 vs. jem7VWH - Which one should I get??

Hey guys,
I'm having trouble deciding between these two guitars.And would like to hear your opinions. I think the 90 looks great but I have to admit that the 7VWH sounds better.(I mean clearer,fuller specially in the clean chanel, with the overdrive on they sound very similar.The cool thing is that the 90 is limited .But hell I'm having trouble diciding!!!Help
Thanks ROB

Jem90 vs. jem7VWH

from what you are saying about the two it would seem you have to weigh what means the most to YOU, looks and collectability or sound? when you figure out what means the most to you then you will have your answer

when choosing a guitar what means the most to me is playability and sound, which is why I chose the 7DBK (i like the slightly thinner neck of the 7D)

Jem90 vs. jem7VWH

I personally can't cope with the weird finish on the JEM90 I really wish I could, but I just don't get on with it

If both felt the same to play, or if the JEM90 came in the same colour but a smooth gloss finish I'd go for the 90 just on it's looks and tweak the sound on my amp

I prefer a fuller neck which I think is found on the 7VWH over the 90 too so as they are at the moment I'd go for the JEM7 over the JEM90.

I think you need to play both before you can truly decide which is for you and as AJ says you need to work out what criteria is most important. Looks and limited edition status, or playability and sound?
