1990 UV7PWH - White Flight

I just sent out yesterday the balance $'s to get a 1990 PWH sent my way from a dealer in New York.
It has the Original Edge trem, has anyone tryed the original next to the low pro on a Universe? How is the diference in tension and feel?
I know there is a huge diference on a 6 string from the edge to low pro, and 6 string trems feel far diferent from 7 string trems because of string tension. So that gives me no reference.

Im Guitarless as of two days ago,,,looking so forward to this PWH so we can get back to Recording, yet the original edge on a 7? mmm? I may have to quickly order a low pro to put on there.

Hey what happened to the New Jem Thread?

Hey Gregory,
*It is being shipped to me here in Michigan from New York today. *Should have it Thursday or Friday.
*Wonder how She will be,,,I do know from my experience, the early Jem and UV's are much better than the mid to later years, so im sure it will be sweet.

Just wonder about the original edge on a 7 string? Some new ground for me to check out.

i can't say i've played the earier UVs, but my '99 UV777bk plays/looks/sounds (mostly) like a dream! *The AANJ was a big improvement.

I've heard it called 'the ultimate players guitar' here and other places as well.

can anyone who has owned both compare earlier vs later UVs?

Picture the UV777BK with the old, klunky heel. The old UVs have a similar neck (slight variences of cource), however on occasion you'll find some with the nasty poly-acrylic on rear of the neck instead.

The Edge7 and EdgeLoPro7 have the similar stiff feel. The Edge might be more lively due to the mass further back but very close... glen

Yeah the UV777BK's aanj is a big plus, what I have found is the older UV's sounding much better and having much thinner necks. I have played 6 of the new UV's, they are very sweet! just something missing in the sound compared to Older UV's? Not sure how to pin point it.(may just be weaker wound pickups?) But the necks on at least the ones I have tryed were very thick. I like the old UV neck profile.

mm? thanks Glen for the edge 7 info,,Greg I will let you know once I test drive her.

Peace and make Music

Anyone knows if the end of the heel of the neck was modified with the AANJ ?
I personnaly own a PWH (Moondance, I can tell you you'll fall in love with yours ), and the only thing that bugs me a little is the fact that, under the fretbord, the neck doesn't continue untill 24th fret.
I didn't unassemble the guitar to say that, but I can guess, because when you right hand tap in this area or play the guitar unplugged, you can hear a "hollow" sound, as if there was no wood under the fretboard (or maybe my fretboard wants its freedom back ??? Glups).

Not a big problem, but it would have been better with maple untill the end of the neck. I know that on my JEM90 this problem doesn't exist anymore.

But hey, don't focus on this, you'll love her anyway :biggrin:

Regards.

Eddie, Yeah I use to have a PWH in 1997 for about 6-7 months, and i have had all the Universe machines one time or another, except the uv7bk with out the green, and the PWH is far my fav!!! I have not even been that excited that it's coming after trying to get one for so long??? Im even with out any guitar right now standing in the middle of a recording project? *

I think I will light up when it gets here though,,, Just have to see it to believe it I think?

Peace and make Music for the Future!

Moondance, just to help you in your waiting, here's a photo of mine (yes, I know it'll make you more impatient, but I had myself to wait for one whole month with only this photograph on an auction site before it was mine !!!). This photograph was taken in its previous home (thanks Julien), but I can tell you that she is still as sweet as she was then. Don't forget to drop a line (and a jpg) when you have yours !!!

Don't forget : Ibanez rules (no, this isn't a free add )

Rich if She has a strait neck, level frets and stays in tune,,im jazzed!!!

Eddie, oh dear!!! Nice sweet machine!!! My PWH should be here in one or two more days. Man with no axe since last thursday, the last 6 days have been like the longest hours know to man kind.

Yeah I think Ibanez Guitars are by far the best too, The RG1077XLRB looks like a great sister for the PWH.
There is some very HOT stuff in the 2001 catalog!!!
whoooh!

Peace
