Thanks! and as far as looks go the jem7brmr is sweet.You could face it at the USRG30 and it would look just like it but my jem7vwh plays the fastest for me. Its gonna take some time getting the feel for the neck on the 30. It does sound and play nice though.

Re: My new addition! USRG30TP

Yeah the Jem sounds great and plays cool...... but the first time I handled the Jem7v it was like a wild stallion... it's very hard to control if your playing is sloppy ... the evo pickups will punish you heavily if you play like crap... but now my playing cleaner than ever thank you to the great jem

SWEET USRG man, congratz. I never liked that bulky headstock logo on those though. Doesn't look right IMHO.

Regards

André

Yup, the best logo for me is the Prestige logo. Classy . Anyway, nice axe. I definitely like the top!

Agreed the prestige logo always looks the best but the usa custom logo looks fine as well. nice flame top! on my RG520 it has that trans blue paint which is really hard to see the flame through which is really annoying , do you know what pickups it has?

She plays and sounds beautiful. Such a smooth and flat neck. I really like the small fret wire. I have a 520qs trans black that looks brown. Its also hard to see the flamed top, but not as hard as the blue. As for the pickups, I guess your asking whats in the USRG30, Bridge is a Tone Zone, Neck is a Paf Pro. I am considering installing new pickups and controls in this beauty to freshen it up a bit. The trem needs to be gone thru cause when you bend notes up, the guitar goes sharp. When you bend it down shes back in tune. weird huh?

Re: My new addition! USRG30TP

nup. you will find that all double locking trems do that. nothing to worry about. how sharp is it? can you hear it by ear? cause if it is really obvious by ear maybe you should have it looked at. haha sorry mate but i thank god that my RG520 isnt that crap brown colour (jemsite members lovingly refer to it as 'poo brown'). no offence man. eventualy when ive finished my custom RG1570 and have bought my dream ibanez JPM-P1 (you dont know anybody selling a JPM? a P1, P2, P3 or P4) im gonna the RG refinished in the trans aqua blue thats on some of the older RG3120s

I was asking because sometimes I hear that those Dave Bunker's neck are weird... also, how small is the fretwire? I remember that they hadn't jumbo fret, but I always believed the difference to be minimal
