Finally bought my "first" UV

So after all this time things finally fell into place for me and I picked up a 1999 UV 777 Bk. I say first "real" UV because I have had one of the premium ones and it can't hold a candle to this one. Someone traded it and a 2001 Jem 7VWH in for an EBMM JP6. I picked it up for $1050 with the UV100 case. He even still had the hang tag from when he bought it!
You can't see my face but I'm smiling like a kid on Christmas morning.

I finally got my camera back from the friend I let borrow it so I got a few pics of the UV with the rest of the "family."

It pretty much is. The guy that had it used it for at home studio work and an RG7620 when he played out to save the UV. My luck is usually terrible but in this case fortune smiled upon me

Re: Finally bought my "first" UV

Well, to be honest it's a Sterling JP100D based on the Ball Family Reserve Music Man. It has the DiMarzio pickups that Petrucci had been using until he changed to the Illuminator. I had an actual Music Man a few years ago that I absolutely loved. It was the bare bones model and came from MF. (No matching headstock, dot inlays, no piezo.) This Sterling feels so close to it that if blindfolded and handed each one I'd never know the difference. For $829.00, it's an absolutely outstanding guitar. The only negative is that it only comes with a gig bag.

If the chance ever arises to pick one up at a reasonable price I'm all over it. I just can't afford the $2000 plus price tag on the "real thing." This is also the reason I looked for a UV 777 instead of picking up a Jem 7v7. Japanese quality and I didn't have to sell a kidney on the black market to buy it
