oldddd jems

hey there could you guys post up pics of your old jems? (especially 7vwhs)

maybe older than 5 years old?

im currently investigating, if you will, the state of old gold bridges.
thanks!

If you send me your guitars, I'll take some pictures for you. Okay, maybe you won't go for it, but if I never asked, I'd never know.

what are you looking for exactly, bro? AFAIK, older 7VWHs have gold Lo-Pro Edge, and newer 7VWHs have gold Edge Pros. Both bridges look different.

And, to add some more, most 7VWHs with Lo-Pros have ebony fretboard, and 7VWHs with Edge Pro mostly have rosewood fretboard.

However, there are some 7VWHs with Edge Pro BUT with ebony fretboard.

I'm not sure what year they were made, maybe some other experts may help you.

This is the Edge Pro,


..and this is the Lo Pro Edge.
