Fake Uv MC in london - denmark street

Hello,

there is a FAKE UV MC in londons' "rokas" guitar store , in denmark street , it is a BK with a VERY CRAPPY "swirl" done to it , this almost gives it away , then theres the green DOT inlays and a black scartch plate , with green binding ........and this for 1600 ....its no way a MC

i brought this up with the shop and because im only 15 they argued its and old model you wont know it , your thinking of the New UV777BK , i was like NO i Know what a MC is , next time il bring pics of a real one in....

if anyones in in london check this out NOW

ps they also have a BK with the ibanez logo totally removed from the headstock , as well as the universe logo and the check (so its all black) at a reel good price...1100.......

again that Swirl Is SO Fake.....its like a little toddler took a bucket of paint and threw it on the UV , also it has grey in the mix......

Next time you see it look for the rear rout and control cover. It could be an MC that was converted over by a previous owner. No rear rout, no MC.

There was one VERY similar to this floating around a Leeds store (musicground) a few months ago. It wouldn't surprise me if they haven't moved it down South to try and sell it there.

It too was a bad swirl, on a black and green UV7. With grey paint in the mix. The one I saw wasn't either a ATD (unless Darren was VERY drunk ) or a japanese MKR.

IMHO the best place in England to go for Ibanez is Machinehead in Hitchin who know what they're on about have perfect customer service but HUGE prices

Buying a MC? - buy it from Rich

Yep, seen it, but didn't pay too much attention to it at the time. I remember the mid pu was an 90 model, and yes it has got grey in it, but I don't remember the pickguard being black, so I do think it was rear rout, but then again I saw it a couple of weeks ago, so I can't remember exactly. I heard about when I was guitar shopping months ago, they said they had a UVMC up north and where going to bring it down so I could have a look. It's definetly a bad paint job, and by the time it had appeared in the shop I'd bought my new babies already. Not an ATD, but i just generally assumed it was an MKR, which is not what I would have wanted anyway (which is probably why I didn't pay too much attention to it).

Then again, they are also asking 1100 for that really really beat up UV7BK (the dings look like binding because there are so many of them, and the headstock has been stripped and painted over). UV's are definetly overpriced in this country...

I'll have a quick look at it again this weekend, need to get new strings anyway!

Give 'em some stick Simon. :biggrin:

Jono,
Machinehead I agree are very good with Ibanez, but as you say the prices are awful.

Coda (Stevenage not Luton) seem to be a little better.
They don't stock many, but will barter on the price and will also give you a trade on what you have aswell as the barter, whereas if you try a trade at Machinehead they won't barter and will only trade against list. (unless they changed their policy in the last few months)

Cheers
Steve

P.S. We need a U.K. Rich Harris!....any takers?
I hear human cloning has come a long way...

If you get a Rich Harris clone, then Texas gets one too. *Off to the cloning doctors with you, Rich!
