A Problem that needs Solving!

Hello guys!
Now , i have a problem. i own a beutiful Wolfgang EVH Special (EVH) . A very soulful guitar that screaaams! Beutiful untreated maple neck and fretboard thats very rough and nice.
A floyd that will never go out of tune , but cant go backwards. A D-Tuner (wich is never in use) and some cool pickups.
I love this guitar, and feel its some special connection between it and my hands\me .

But June 20th i attended a G3 show. And seeing Steve play that 7vwh made my mind turn from "a jem would be cool. but i already have a high-end guitar that i love" to "i really need a jem" ..
And if im gonna get one i will have to sell my Wolfgang . But i am in doubt and need you guys to tell me WHY i should have a 7vwh instead hehe ...

I say, go to a store and play a 7V and see if it's your guitar

Play it for at least an hour, because if you play it before you're warmed up, you don't really know how good or bad it is.

never buy anything on impulse.

wait 2 weeks and play it a couple times before you buy it. you may not even like the way it feels.

Why do you HAVE TO sell the Wolfgang? I understand finances, but if you really want a 7V, it'll wait til you have the cash. Then you can have the best of both worlds!

If we have to tell you, you don't need a 7V!

Funny, on June 20th I went to a VH show and my desire to get a Wolfgang Custom Shop is re-ignited....

The problem , wich i forgot to say . Is that i have no possibility to try a jem at all . I just know they are so god damn good-looking hehe .. And no shop will take one in for me to try . cause if its not sold the store is bankrupt (its 4000$!) so i have to decide without really knowing if i like it . I know the neck is really thin , but i guess i can learn to love that ..

The reason i cant wait , is that it takes TIME for me to raise that kind of money . no job hehe ...
Well .. anywho ..
bye

If you check the classifieds on this site, you may snatch a VWH for way less than 4000 bucks. Even in norway

Why should you learn to love it? Why don't you just get something you already like?

I say save up and buy a used one. If you can't justify the two guitars, after a few months, sell the one you use less.
