The Ernie Ball JP BFR 7 rules in so many ways! Great comfort, love the tone, this guitar was meant to be perfected in the highest form!
The playabilty on this guitar is just awesome, I can't say enough, the frets and craftsmanship on this guitar is pretty much perfection (for me at least).
Plus the pickups are just meant for metal!

Also, I like to announce that I am in my first band as well (Whisper From Heaven)!
So it's been great in terms of music recently, and I can't wait to start playing live again!
Congrats man, those are killer guitars.
