NGD Finally the top of the tree (of life) for me!!

Finally i own the Jem 7vwh!!!!

It's a golden era one as well, year 2000, ebony board.

Reeeaalll bright and spanky in tone in comparison to the 5o5.
I was surprised even tho i was expecting it due to all the bright woods.

I want to change all the gold hardware to black cosmo
(i put and ad in the classifieds)

This also means I can go ahead with my plan to put Bare Knuckle Juggernauts in the 505

Cool threadomancy!

Thanks guys, I got a great deal on this. So great I felt bad for the seller!

It is going to get the Evo treatment but without the faked chipping and wear.

Congrats on the NGD man!
I definitely like the Evo look with the dark hardware (minus the cracks and gouges)

Re: NGD Finally the top of the tree (of life) for me!!

I agree with ST, the hardware change can look nice but don't scratch and gouge a perfectly nice guitar (I don't get the whole relic thing)... if you're looking for ideas on changing hardware, here's how mine looks with a hardware change. I actually bought it like this - the only thing I changed was the pickups because the guy had the original Evos in it with gold pole pieces, which looked funny without the gold hardware. The previous owner also changed the trem to an OE. I think the 7vwh looks nice with the silver hardware, if you want to try a different look. Your 7vwh also looks like it's in better condition than mine (mine has a few character marks)

At first I thought it was a Jem 555...

Ace!

The hardest bit to find is more appropriate pick guard.
