What is the difference (if any) between the Jem7v and the Jem7vwh?

I believe they are both the same except the WH means white.

I'm sure that if im wrong someone will correct me.

like mentioned, the WH is just the color, its part of Ibanezes model name format

they also did a JEM7VSBL (I belive SBP would be 'sparkle blue') for about 3 years

also, it just occured to me that "V" means it has the vine inlay (there are the older JEM7 guitars with just the dots, and just like with the original JEM777 ones and the 777V ones that came out a year or 2 later with the vine)

Well for the first three Jem models which were the Loch ness green, Desert yellow, and shocking pink. Only 777 of them were made and hand signed by Steve himself.

But the 7's also mean something else. like if u looks on some pictures of the all seeing eye, there are sevens at all the corners of the triangle. i forget what that means, but that also could be a reason for the 7's.

At first, it started out with the "higher" models were 777, and the "lower" were 7. Or at least so it seemed. Ibanez has not followed a particular pattern on the numbering.....
