after hesitating between a JS1000, a 7DBK a 7VWH I finally choosed.... Eva :love:
I fell for her neck...
click here for frets
As soon as I touch her I reached the point of no return :loco:
Seriously I must admit it was a close call... The JS
didn't weight a lot in the balance (sorry you JS
) but the DBK really impressed me. I must say that I was not a fan of its "tar-like" appearance but it plays so wonderfully and the Breed have some major bite (neck as a nice touch too)... I was getting ready to adopt one when I finally touched Eva... OMG :silly:
While seating myself with her I inadvertibly hit a string (I wasn't looking :doh: ) and I wondered what open string would ring like that.... an E was chimming with just a bit of distortion and I realised: "this can't be the low E (pitch is too high) neither can it be the high E (pitch too low)".... Then I realised it was "just" an harmonic
I've never heard harmonic of this class before! Sure the neck was superb compared to the DBK and the finish flawless but the sound WOW I started shaking like leaf after that! It took me 5 minutes to cool down and start to actually play with it.
This axe here in Canada commands a 3K$ price tag... 1200$ more than a DBK and after caressing her neck ( while she caressed my hears
) my mind was set... My heart (and my wallet) were instantly broken.
Truth said, I haven't been playing guitar for long: I started less than 6 months ago. So I didn't expect to feel that much of a difference between the DBK and VWH. But I did....
Glen you told me that I would not have anything to look at if I "weaned" on the 7VWH but you know what... I think I'll have all JEM too look at :biggrin:
BTW this jem is a real GAS terminator
(that is for any guitar other than Jem :biggrin
P.S. I know bits a german so "Evo" became "Eva" for me but anybody got a better name for "Snowhite"
EDIT - nice axe. huge JPG changed to link because it causes browser wrapping issues.
