NGD!!! Sort of... But at least the hunt is over. (JPX7 content)

I have been searching for the perfect 7 string to come by for a long time.

It has always been in my mind as a JP7. But I was stubborn. I was determined to find salvation elsewhere. I tried Schecters and Ibanezes. Sure, they're pretty ok guitars. But nothing really wow-ed me. The locking trems or extended scales didn't do it for me (I had a killer RG1077XL back then, and that one was a pain to play. GREAT guitar though!) Then came the thought of getting a custom job. After going back and forth, not knowing the result and being unsure of myself too much, I decided to can the idea and stick to a 6 string for that job (still waiting for it's completion).

Then one day, I spied in the EBMM Forum For Sale Thread a mint condition JPX7. I took the plunge. The price was good, and the guitar specs looked great... on paper. I always thought I wanted the forearm scoop for a 7. I LOVE the JP6. I love what it is. An amazingly ergonomical guitar with great tones, courtesy of the latest LF/CL combo (I sort of outgrew the AN/SS tone) So the JPX was a bit of a step for me. But in the case I didn't like it, I knew I could easily resell it.

I just picked it up today from the FedEx warehouse (no one at home to accept the delivery) and you know, one of those times you know you got a winner? This was it. I dabbled a little with it at home, and it bonded instantly! The larger body, the painted neck, the larger frets, WOW! It's like I've had it for ages! The bonding was instant. It's like when I first tried the JP6 in Japan. I KNEW I had to own it from the first note.

So with this, I know now I have ended the hunt for a 7 string with the JPX7. I didn't expect it to be like this. But I guess it IS a JP7 after all. On steroids though. Heh.

Here are them pics:

It's a strat style, but with locking tuners. Very stable.

How can you not like it without trying it? I bought a JP6 this year and actually like the MusicMan trem more than the Edge. That could be because I'm not whammy crazy but I do use the trem and find it very stable.

It's a floating trem but not a floyd. No locking nut but locking tuners.


Beautiful man! Congrats! How are you liking it so far?

Loving it. It's actually making me WANT to learn more on how to play a 7 rather than just chugga chugga in low B. hahahhaa...

Yours is just as nice. The only difference between yours and mine is the slightly different body shape, and the chambering on mine.
