The pickup theory isn't perfect, either =]
Mine is a '91, but it's 'transitional' - it's got the larger Edge 7 routing (cavity goes further back for the string clamp screws), yet has a LoPro 7. And, as for the pickup, my single is one of the chrome slug pole ones...
Going by my serial number, it was an early '91, so it must have some of the last few of the components that were prep'ed for the '90 stylings.
(And, yes, I'm the original owner, came to me new in a shipping box...)
... btw, on Vai.com, a new pic of Steve recording in The Mothership shows him playing - you guessed it - one of his original UV7BKs, the one with the yellow (?) dots applied, and 'Jem' on the headstock.
