What Jem to buy ? - What's your opinion?

Think it's time to go for another JEM. Have one with the vine,
one with the DNA pattern but no one with the pyramids. Could
get a DY. On the other side i could get a VWH. The problem is
the VWH is the better player (i read here often), has AANJ, but looks imho a little boring (white, white,...). The DY has the pyramids but no EVO's, no AANJ, but looks better.
Want to hear your opinions.
(Are pink coloured EVO's available?)
Thanks Wolfgang

Time for another jem, do I ever know what you mean LOL
I would say get the VWH just for the simple fact that it is such a nice guitar, but then, I have a DY too, and I love it, but the pickups are ick to me, so I don't use it that often. *I think you can get any dimarzio in pink still, so evo's in pink shouldn't be a problem!

Get a DY! All JEM's play great! The white is dull looking and the gold plating on the hardware will wear. The original colors look like candy - the brighter the better.

If I see one more black guitar I'm gonna puke (even though I just got a UV7BK - 'cause it has the pyramid inlay).

BE A MAN! GET A GUITAR WITH SOME PINK IN IT!!!!! *

:love:

ALL DiMarzio P'ups are available in all colors by special order at no extra charge. *Go to your local music store (after you decide which guitar/colors) and tell them you want an F Spaced Evo Bridge in pink and a neck Evo in pink. *

i special ordered a blue evo for my BFP and a red PAF 7 and EVO-7 for my UV. *takes about 2 weeks.

as for the guitars...if it's a choice between Green, hot pink and yellow - i'd go yellow. *

Between u and me, i think the DY would look cool with black or yellow p'ups, rather than pink.

Get the DSY... *If you switch the pickups it will be a really nice stage guitar, because it looks more outstanding than the VWH, witch actually looks pretty boring...

How about the original....JEM777LNG! I would love to pick one up myself, but I'd want a dead mint one....getting tough to come by and lots of $$$$$$.

There's a DY and an LNG on the Bay of Evil right now. *Neither priced particularly high either.

There is a boatload of nice high-end Ibanezes on EBay right now.....here is my wish list of JEMs, for reference:

1 - JEM7VWH
2 - JEM777DY
3 - JEM77FP

UVs

1 - UV7PWH
2 - UV7BK

That's just my two cents....get the VWH or the 777DY....the coolest lookers out there....that yellow is so damn UGLY it's awesome! *I want one! *Ron, sell me yours! *Now! *hehehe

Pyramids and Evo's are not an existing combination so you either have to give up on of them or change the pickups on a model with pyramids.

I'd forget about the pyramids and get a BSB.

There! Now you got yet another option. :biggrin:

I have both the 7VWH and 777DY. Personally, I feel that the 7VWH blows away the DY. I prefer the Evo's over the Paf Pro's, the Ebony over the Maple, and the AANJ over the old style neck joint. I also prefer the Lo-Pro over the Edge that's on my DY. Later DY's did come with the Lo-Pro. The only reason I bought the DY was for the pyramid inlays (which are totally cool) and to try out a maple fretboard. If I ever get my hands on a 90th, I'll sell the DY. --rvj

May be not a bad idea! But if she really looks like Rich has posted it's not my thing,because she's to much like a Fender Strat.
