i love it but theres only one problem, you walk into a guitar shop, it catchs the corner of your eye, "OMG ITS A JEM10th!!! . . . Aaawww"

still a savage machine though, just its almost a Jem 10th but not :wink:

has the face of the body got a band around it like the UV777 or is it rounded like the normal 7vwh?

It's not that "new".
It's simply all the left-over bodies from the abandoned BRMR production...

I've heard that before. I have no idea if it's true or not, but I'm inclined not to believe it; If the bodies were leftovers, then they should be thinner than a regular jem, since on a BRMR the mirror top has a certain thickness.

I love it and I want it. Not too bright like the Jem7v and almost looks like it was born from the UV777 and the Jem7v.

I have no idea about "left overs" but, as you may know, it is not necessery. A new basswood lamination top can be applied on body and noone can realize the difference...

But it might be, you know, unnecessery. Manufacturing a new body might be cheaper, hm? :)

I dont really like it. its a UV 777BK without the light without heat logo and has only 6 strings.

i think the BRMR was better. well i think "my" is better.

True, but do note that the 77VBK has a bound body.
Since when do JEMs come with a bound body?
Ah, since the BRMR.......
