Gassing for a Universe

Well I saw periphery last friday, and ever since I have been craving that 7 string thing. I absolutely love the heavy sound of 7 strings and have wanted another JEM to do drop tunings with since I got my first one. Well now I think I have a desperate craving for the Universe, which will fulfill 7 strings and being able to drop tune (although a nuisance with a floyd). So now comes the quest to find a Universe that has been loved, I'm not looking for mint but a player.

Re: Gassing for a Universe

You should try posting a WTB (want to buy) thread in the classifieds if you are looking for people to sell you a guitar. If you decide to do this please read the rules governing the classifieds. Thanks.

Re: Gassing for a Universe

I thought Periphery played blackmachines (enough to make me drool also)?

Anyways, I can relate I have been gassing for a Universe for a while now, but they only seem to pop up cheap when I'm broke.

What I did when I went to look for one before (and ended up with a dirt cheap mint K7) was check:

classifieds here
classifieds on (always something nice there)
local classifieds (like craigslist)
silly maybe, but try a google search. I actually did that yesterday and found 4 Universes in my area that were actually still for sale on various sites.

rinse and repeat

I eventually found my guitar on one of the local sites.

good luck!
