Very simple solution - do you prefer to play a 6 string or a 7 string;)

I have a vwh and love it. Bad Horsie - well it's a Jem..that says it all:D Couldnt tell you about the UV777 but I always hear they are top notch.

Even better solution - with $ 8,500 you can buy one of each:D

lol i've only played a hand full of 7 strings as we dont get many down here and i've never played a universe the 7 strings i have played are John petrucci signature as far as the bad horsie i think of it and think too much maintence i have cats who could stratch the **** out of it and as for the jem i've wanted the white jem forever since i first saw vai with evo and yeah that would be nice to buy all the jems but i need the rest of the money for other things

DNA = fantastic - However - you may think more like - VWH 2ND hand for say $1500 (check the for sales here) and getting a great amp and effects - it's always worth remembeing that the best guitar ever made played through a 5watt practice amp will sound, well, exactly like a 5watt practice amp, whereas a Korean made RG550 through a heinous Mesa Boogie stack or a Hughes & Kettner TriAmp will have women and children running for cover, small birds falling out of the sky in shock and poorly constructed local buildings being condemned as massive cracks start to appear in their foundations........

...... it's all a question of balance I suppose - BTW, I've never actually dealt with Rich, but by all accounts he's the best guy in the business when you're talking high end Ibanez.

Cheers, and wise choosing,
David.

personally id go with the VWH, plays amazingly, and w/ the spare cash theres room for mods, (sustainer anyone?)
i heard some bad stuff about the finish on the bad horsie jem, like it cracking without reason. vwh seems more low maintinence (and still looks fantastic)

wish i had that kind of $$$ to throw around ;) have fun with it

LOLOLOLOLOL!!!

Eddie,

Last time I looked Rich had a player UVMC!!

with any of the guitars you mentioned... if you get a decent used price you could resell for about the sameif you keep it in about the same condition...... so why not take 2006 to try them all out!! And then make your decision!!
