I had a loaded JP7 I got from Amazon when they were listed for stupid prices, but sold it like a dumbass. After a bad experience with a "Premium" Ibanez I started longing for a no-compromise high quality shred machine and another JP seemed like just the right choice. Somehow I managed to get pretty much the exact same deal I got last time. The JP6 is every bit as awesome as the JP7 was. I don't think the figuring on either of the neck's I've had has been too crazy, but this one has some flamey-ness to it. it has the newer trem which I thought was kind of ugly at first, but it's not a big deal. I remember thinking the JP7 was a bit sterile sounding, but I'm loving the tone from the JP6. It really sounds incredible. Okay, picture time!
