Universe set up...

I just bought a new UV777, and I'd like to know what to do to get it as close to perfect playing condition with as little time and money invested as possible.

And would anyone recommend swapping out the 500k pots for 1M pots?

Re: Universe set up...

Keep the pots, change the bridge p/up to evolution, change the pickguard to one not slippy, and you can keep the original trem studs. I found this to be a great balanced guitar and easy to setup...just the required action with the stud height. I use 56 on its 7th and either a set of 9.5-44 or 9-42EXP D'Addarios. The neck is solid! Probably will be perfect already. The intonation on the 7th may need to be all the way to the right side. I only find that the 7th still sounds abit weak in comparrison to the others. I believe Vai knows this too but won't be moving to baritone due to expenses & contract deals etc.

Re: Universe set up...

Vai actually has a few LACS Baritones... I believe a six and a seven. Believe it or not, I dig the tone of the Blazes. I was just wondering if switching the pots out could increase the punchiness since the 500k pots act like a low pass filter and 1 Meg pots retain all the top end.
