Well, just my opinion but it can't look good, sound good, play good, hehe, I'm just kidding, I don't like the DBK's even a little bit, but it's all just personal preference. *If you love it, that's all that matters!!!

it cant make a good cheese sandwich, but I can live with it.

I like em, from time to time Ill swear that they are total $h|te, but usually I *come to my senses, I think they can get a bit muddy. but the second and fourth positions on The D are some of my fav pickup combinations.

I personally like the way it looks, and, if it can reproduce the Fender neck tone, I may choose to get one. *That's the one thing I like about my Squire, the neck clean tone. *Just my $0.02 CAN

It can't leap tall buildings in a single bound. Nor is it faster than a speeding bullet. It's not a bad guitar, just different when compared to the 7VWH.

Very true, can't be a bass come to think of it, or a sports car, could be a snowboard I suppose, tennis racket, yeah, baseball bat? nah, that's more of a les paul thing! I think it would work well for a canoe paddle! *so do fenders LOL J/K of course! *

The fact is, they are good guitars, and if you love em, who the hell cares what anyone else thinks!!!!!

I love my 7vwh so I really wanted to like the 7dbk. Of course the body and fret board are diffent materials but they should be close. Every time I try a dbk it feels cheaper. I trying closing my eyes when playing one (to try to trick myself in thinking it's a 7vwh) but the rough texture gives it away. I wonder if the dbk would cost more, would I change my opinion? Am I judging by features and price (probably)?
Love what you play and play what you love, one man's junk, anothers treasure, you get what you pay for, etc...(blah, blah, blah)

I own a beautiful 7VWH that my wife loves to keep out on the living room wall. I play my 7DBK, because to me it feels, sounds and plays better *I just can't seem to get along with Ebony fretboards {sigh} *but of all my guitars, including 3 Jems, a Universe and a USRG, my 7DBK is #1.

the 7DBK has very quickly become my #1 guitar, can't imagine ever not having one....the clean sounds and screaming sounds are awesome

looks aren't that important to me in a guitar but I think it looks very very cool, otherworldly in a way
