Really? I was pretty sure it was an ATD. It's a tough one though.

It's not an MKR. ATD for sure.

Re: UVMC production, ATD vs MKR, EVERYBODY'S HELP REQUESTED


So just for fun, I own an ATD UV77MC and was wondering what a rough production number is. Mine is a 1991 with a very nice swirl. I have pics in an old thread. Thanks for the info!!!

Old thread with pictures.

Re: UVMC production, ATD vs MKR, EVERYBODY'S HELP REQUESTED


Hi,

This is a pic of my UV which I own from new in '91 (910424).
Can anyone tell me what the difference is between MKR and ATD? (probably a stupid question so sorry for that).

Re: UVMC production, ATD vs MKR, EVERYBODY'S HELP REQUESTED


Itīs a MKR for sure. You can tell by the colours and type of swirl. The MKRīs are a bit washed out and the colours are not as vibrant as the much prefered ATDīs.
Isnīt that UVMC for sale in the Netherlands? It looks familiar. EDIT: just looked it up, yes, itīs for sale and itīs a decent MKR too. Good luck with the sale mate. Iīm sure it will be gone soon.

I have this MKR, Look familiar to anyone?

The rest of the guitar is on an OOTS body at the moment, but I am very tempted to change it back!

Possibly the same one that is currently for sale from some British company on Gbase?

Yes, that's my old one that I had out on commission to Rockers in Denmark St. I got it from a guy in Switzerland I think.



Looks better all together as far as I'm concerned!

Wow, wasn't expecting much of a reply at all! Thanks for replying, it's great to hear about its past life

I've heard legends of Rockers getting a sh*tload of JEMs in at one point a couple of years ago... don't suppose they came from you? If so, I know the whereabouts of some of them

As far as the body goes, I prefer the look of the MKR, but the body is pretty mint so I can keep it that way by storing it safely

Yeah, I had to dump my whole collection when I moved overseas. Some went here and on craigslist, but the bulk went to Rockers initially on commission and then they bought out the whole lot. (Everything you hear about Music Ground is true by the way, I ended up having to threaten court action to get everything I was owed).

I saw a few pop back up but always interested to know where they ended up.

Small world! It's a shame you had to sell everything...

I'm not sure what the Music Ground thing is all about, truth be told I was introduced to JEMs from my friend about a year ago and got hooked on how nicely they played. That same friend bought your DY and VSK, and was drooling over the Universe. Imagine his reaction when I showed it to him! He sold the VSK a while back, and funnily enough the person I bought the Universe from was the VSK's new owner. He still has the DY, and the VSK owner isn't going to be letting it go any time soon.

I don't suppose you had a PMC as part of your collection? I bought one last year (from Rockers) and I've been dying to know about its history. I've attached a pic of it for you to see.

Yes, that was my PMC. I'll send you a PM to avoid derailing this thread too much.
