Re: VSBL with new scratch plate

Now that's what I've been tellling my girlfriend about. If only it was released with that pickguard it would've sold much better. The white just kinda sucks on blue.

Very nice, now I want one too.

The way it is makes it look like a strat in a cool and understated way and some of us really like that.

Re: VSBL with new scratch plate

I understand, and hope I didn't offend. I know "some" people like the white pick guard, but most people must not like it as it didn't sell to well, so poorly they discontinued the JEMVSBL. I love the Sparkle Blue finish and the blue vine, but thought the White pick guard clashed. While the pick guard on the VWH goes with the white finish on the VWH, therefore doesn't clash..of course this is just one mans opinion.

Re: VSBL with new scratch plate

Absolutely, very few of us like a stratted jem, after all the VSBL is the only jem people will mod - to make it more jem like.
I'd rather mod a VWH to chrome hardware and flat white scratchplate to make it more strat like but people are different.
I know for me jems have lost their apeal completely and the 7VSBL is the only jem I like.

Re: VSBL with new scratch plate

i love blue and i think that they are stunning guitars , i like white but i have recently seen one in person so to speak and i didnt like it as much ( bezial ducks the barrage of attacks from vwh owners ) thats just me though and everones different, hey i would love to see a sparkle green or purple i think that would rock , any way just wanted you all to see what i had done, thanks to ekg (even if it did take a while ) i think it was worth waiting for and i know i have something no one else has in my town and i would almost dare to say western au.

Re: VSBL with new scratch plate

Has anyone tried a blue tinted mirror pickguard on their VSBL? That may be my choice for mine. I'll post pics if I decide to go that route.

A few guys have the white VWH pickguard on theirs, and that looks much nicer than stock, also.
