Re: torn between two jems

Ah.....you got a bit of G.A.S. do ya lad

"Torn between two loved Jem's....feeeling like a fool"

Just quoting an old song my mom used to listen to

I'm just going to say that since I got my Brmr, I rarely pic up my Vwh anymore! The Breeds rule!!!

One other thing to note is that the Brmr is discontinued

Heck does it matter?? At some point you'll probably end up getting both anyways

Re: torn between two jems

I'd say get the 7VWH by looks alone. I personally never liked the sound of the breeds because my ears always tell me they sound muffled but that's just me. The other reason why I picked the white one over the horsie is because I'm biased about chrome finishes and their maintenance as far as cleaning them, etc.

They're two different sounding and playing guitars. We'd need to know what your style is like and what kind of sound you're going for.

OUCH!! Certainly didn't mean to offend, just pointing out that GAS is an addiction ( at least for me ) - you get a fix for that short time after you get that new guitar, then the newness wears off and you just have to have another.

I'd personally get a VSBL, but for some reason not much others like it very much.
