I've noticed that with the JEM 7VWHP model. There seems to be slight differences with neck feel, tone and overall weight of the guitar. I have the 30th JEM777 Loch Ness Green, so I have something to compare it with. I really like the quality of the Indonesian JEM 7VWHP, but the tone of the guitar is so dark and beefy sounding. I was considering changing out the electronics, i.e., pots, 5-switch, capacitor, etc. Even though, this Indo JEM has the Evo pickups and the original Edge Tremolo, it just doesn't have that same Japanese JEM tone and feel. I've often wondered if other Indo JEM owner's have this same issue?
