Re: 2013 Premium UV70....

I'll look at getting one depending on the price since I'd like a second 7 string Premium RG. I already have the Black RG827 but I only had to pay $799 for it and even once I change over the pickups, I still will be under $1K.

Is there any pics of the new UVs or any other 2013 Ibbys out yet?

me too - I've tried the Premiums and I wasn't impressed - I think I'd rather buy a used MIJ off CL, which would also probably be a better investment

It looks like it doesn't have an Edge or Lopro Edge, but some other type of bridge.

Like an RG7320 with a single coil, a pickguard, and dimarzio pups....how much does an RG7320 go for these days?

Re: 2013 Premium UV70....

It's basically a reissue UV7BK with AANJ and EZ2-7. I'll give you the EZ2-LoPro, but I'd take the modern 5 piece neck with jumbo's over the old scarf joint that by now usually has quite a bit of scarf shrinkage, and frets that maybe 1mm tall, combined with neck issues makes for a terrible guitar. Much less a MINT 7BK will run you twice what a brand new UV70 will.
