Edge 7 UV77MC

I have 2 UV77MC. Both of them are MKR, but they pretty good swirls (IMHO). One of them has some oddities.....

It has an Edge7 instead of a Lo Pro, and it has a bird eye maple neck (the neck si slightly figured, but the headstock is very figured). Ive heard there were only a bunch of UV77MC with Edges, just the very first ones.

The other one is a regular UV77MC (the green one). None of them has any dings or chips. The green one has almost not fretwear or trem pitting at all. It doesnt even have a neck joint crack. The Yellow one (the one with the edge) doesnt have any dings or chips, but it has some trem pitting and a little freatwear (although it still plays great and doesnt need any work at all). Recently a small (very hard to see) neckjoint crack appeared on one of the sides.

I may sell one of the 2, and I want to know wich one would you keep. Does the fact that one fo them comes with an edge and a bird eye maple neck add some value at all? Rich, your advice would be valuable.

Does anybody also own an edge7 UV77MC? Any idea about how many of these were made?

Here is a pic of both of them:

Re: Edge 7 UV77MC

Every single 90' has the Edge. Any added value from the type wood is miniscule, swirls price by swirl and condition.

Re: Edge 7 UV77MC

Thanks! That was my guess, but since I saw a classified WTS UV77MC here that stated there were very few edge equipped UVs (he said there were about 40 edge equiped UVmC), then the question arised.

Any idea how many UV77MC were made on 1990 (were they mostly MKRs or ATD)? Iknow there are no figures, but may be you can have a guess based on the proportion of 90sUVMC you ve seen vs the overall quantity of UVMC you ve seen. I know the 1050-1080 number is not to be trusted, but any idea would help.

BTW, how did the ATD vs MKR figures turn out in percentages?

I know this questions dont have a "right" or certain answer. What is your guess?

Heavy on the MKR's, around 65%. Nothing has been done to sort 90's from 91's, but they were cranking them out in Japan long after ATD started doing them.
