Anyone know anything about this original UV77MC?

i think I'm gonna cross post this in hopes of getting a fast response, but anyone know anything about this Universe? sure looks like a ATD swirl (and personally i like a lot of black in my swirl), but figure y'all have more frame of reference than I do.
I have an opportunity to grab it (nice compliment to my uv77mc-RE i think :-))
and what's the traditional price range for a mint used one?

TIA for any help

Wow... have not seen this one before. Mint condition is probably 5000$ or even more.

Thats what I was thinking too. normally there is at least some kinda wear there and this thing looks like it rolled out the shop in 91 and didnt get played at all.

Re: Anyone know anything about this original UV77MC?

I got it tonight...it's pretty badass. outside of small hairline cracks in the clearcoat at the neckjoint on both sides, the thing is flawless. I love the swirl and honestly it's hard to say cause i love the mc-re setup, but it is set up and plays better than my new one.
wife kinda freaked out at the new one on the wall though...so not sure I'm gonna be able to keep both :-( for now, they look wonderful together (iphone shot):


the swirl is crazy, i'll shoot close up and high rez shots tomorrow.

Lol...seriously considering it...her saving grace is a Ducati she allowed to be in the garage as of last month :-) It's staying there for a bit regardless...it was too beautiful to pass up and I have a feeling her feelings will subside with time. hell, I figured she wouldn't really even notice and foolishly threw it up on the wall next to the RE...I shoulda just rotated them on and off the wall and she woulda prolly never noticed that they were different guitars :-)

I think you'd save grace if you repainted the wall
Surely such works of art deserve a better surrounding to set them off
