Yep, i went to try out the DBK, and the WH, and the VSBL...
The DBK, to me, is a much 'darker' sounding guitar than the 7VWH, like you said, way more for metal styles, and i suppose neo-classical is a metal style...but, that kinda sound i really dont need, since i already got a UV777 and a Gibson Gothic Explorer fior when i wanna thrash out. But yes, its a very 'shreddy' guitar, super thin neck, very fast, although, i feel like, its too flat, i dont mind tiny thin neck, but i prefer them to have a curve to them, this neck, much like my UV777 is like a table top surface, flat.
As for the 7VWH, its white...and gold... this doesnt seem to be a problem for most of you guys...but i refuse to own a white and gold guitar (ELVIS LIVES!) and considering my room has black walls, purple carpet, and chrome+leather finishings, it would seem...out of place, not to mention i hate the whole gold thing...) But, those petty details aside, what a fantasticly easy to play guitar, for me anyways, it retains the feel of my FP, which keeps me comfortable, and it gives me an AANJ. To top it off it gives me a totally different range of sonic possibilites. the output is very high, or seems much higher than the PAF pros, gives insane harmonics... this i like... Things only get better.... they make it in blue....
First thing that springs to mind...ooooo its so shiny... the finish seems to glisten in a rather unusual way, since specs of metal in the finish give off huge bright sparks of blue light. the forum was right about this guitar, it has to be seen in person. Felt like the VWH, cept with a rose wood board, which gave me even more continuity with my FP, another bonus. same feel/sound entierly other than that it would seem.
So, the VBSL it is... i think i have found somewhere i can pickup a new one for £1000...which is dirt cheap since its mint condition. When i pick it up, ill try out that whole...'less gain, more tone' idea. Sound like a damn stupid idea to me! Crank it up!!
Thanks for all your advice guys, ill keep ya posted.
