I have entered the Matrix

You all probably remember me and katrina a few months ago talking about steve vai coming to sign autographs. steve had signed a universe that sam ash was going to rise the price on and sell. well, for three months nothing happened. so today, i walk into the store to buy a universe, since i had just got the money after saving for eiht or nine months. and, unfortunately they didn't have a new one in the back in a box or anything. but they still had the one that was signed by steve. well, after hanging around the store a while, the sales man, after hanging around the guitar for a while (i had a universe held over a phone call, and since that one was the only one in stock, that's the on e they held for me) since they had gotten the case ready. the sales person talks to me about the price, and i told him, there's no way in hell i could afford the signed guitar. so, he asks me what kind of price i'm looking for, and i said the lowest possible. and what do you know, he comes back with it at the exact price i was looking for in the first place. so what happens? i walk away with the guitar that i had witnessed steve sign and put in a glass case only three months after he signed it. THE EXAACT GUITAR is sitting iin my lap right now. katrina and other friend brandon (vai7or7die) had come over the previous night and slept over, and needless to say, they were there to witness the purchase of my UV777BK. and here is the proof:







Brandon also got a jem which you can see clearly in the picture.
more pics and videos up later, in the time that katrina brandon and i hung out, we took over 120 pictures and about 7 videos. so stay tuned for the next installment!

i love the seven string. it plays so good, it kicks my ass.

the whole thing just reeks of proffessional. the thing that stuns me the most is the binding all around the body and neck. pretty.. lol

Re: I have entered the Matrix

Congrats Brandon!

I've been meaning to ask Universe owners this: How well does the Baze II neck perform for Jazz? I'm intrested in getting a UV (provided that I can manage to score with my exam lol) to make it an all rounder.
