yesterday a 7brmr came to the local store, i was called by my friends who work there and went to try it.

1st, i saw it looked really nice, but personally speaking, not as nice as a vwh.
checked the finishing it was really nice.

the new neck didnt feel as smooth as the old one piece neck.

i played on the guitar using the roland cube 30 amp, which is an amazing amp.
the harmonics came out fine the guitar played like a dream, however there was something missing, somthing called a soul, the guitar was just there delivering the notes but it was somehow cold! :S

i unplugged it, grabbed a 7vwh, and my oh my, that guitar sang so beautifully.
nothing justifies the price of the mirror jem, its listed for 2600:$ in the store.
it wasnt like the brmr had a different color, it simply didnt have a color at all!
while the 7vwh and universe 777bk are beasts of their own.

^^ Nothing wrong with Gibsons now...

But having something different is always a good thing! When I got my Jem, I got it at Guitar Center due to 0% financing for 13 months. Would have bought it from Rich first but I would have had to wait another half year (and I probably would have spent all the money knowing me!).

They had a large amount of rg's and a js1000 which I liked a lot but wasn't what I was in the market for and a used Jackson soloist SL-1 with a real good price tag. Met a guy there who I have played with since, and as soon as I plug in the Jackson he said "get the Ibanez you were just playing, that thing sounded great!"

You know, I'm jealous of you guys with half decent local stores hehe. My local music shops are pretty much just stock mid-range copies. Have to go to London for anything Ibanez. They had a Jem once at a local store, but it sold so quickly it was gone by th time I heard they had it in.

Ralph, I have both a 7V and the BRMR. I love my BRMR. It plays awesome and sounds amazing. Yes, I agree the price is steep. To be honest I paid a lot less then the price of $2300 so I could not pass mine up. I got it brand new for less then $2K. Would I have bought it for $2300? Probably not. I think the 7V and the BRMR offer different qualities then the other. Just my opinion., but I really think they are both excellent guitars.
