Tonight I had my first band practice with the JP7 and the RG1077XL. This is the first time I've had either of them loud and actually kind of "rocked out" on them. For the last few months I've been basically an arm chair guitarist.
And I hate to say it but... I just was not feeling the JP7 at all.
I think I just may prefer the extra length and string tension on the Ibanez. I've had all scale lengths from 24.75 to 28.5. The instant I picked up the 1077 for the first time in the store a few months back, it just felt right.
It kind of sucks because I loved the crap out of my old JP7s and the latest has been awesome while I've been noodling around on it at home.
I guess all I can say is...
Well, if you wanna send it my way
