Situation at the moment :
I own two signature models :
- JEM 90 HAM
I like them both, but : although I really want to keep my 90, for it's playability, look and "uniqueness", the PWH is by far my favourite, cause :
- I really love its tone
- Rosewood is more "stable" (ebony on the 90, as a dense wood with a very thin neck is very sensitive to temperature variations (maybe that's why Vai seems to prefer rosewood… : ebony fretboards need perpetual tunings (trussrod adjustment) to keep the low action we all like, regardless of the temperature)
- The PWH neck is really a highway to shred ! (even with the .09-.46 + .56 that I use)
- The PWH has this "90's vibe" (for me it's the "Vai vibe"
) that I don't find on the lately released models.
Question to my friends Jemsiters :
Which Jem to buy ??? (in order to find all the features I like on the PWH, but with 6 strings.)
In sight : a 777 DY, and a 777VBK (AANJ is not a problem)
To all of you who know all those different babes, which one would you recommend ? If I find a 6 strings that gives me all my PWH gives, I'll have find my Graal ! *
Thanks for your help and advices !!! (and no, I can't afford buying both
