I love my UVs - A senseless praise fest.
Hi everyone. I haven't been lurking around the forum much for the same reason I missed Jemfest... BUSY!
Jemfest 2001 was so cool, but I shipped my MC to the Hotel and UPS lost it for 2 weeks. I was so worried about her that I couldn't sleep. When she finally returned home I promised never to let her out of my sight again.
This year, because Gabe is a trustworthy friend, I broke my promise and shipped both my UVs with him to Jemfest, along with my Rivera and Marshall. I have been so busy that I haven't been able to drive the 45 minutes to Gabe's house to retrieve the gear yet. Gabe offered to deliver it, but I figured he has done enough driving in the past week.
My point... The empty amplifier corner in my studio doesn't bother me. The missing UVs do. I like them so much that even if I wasn't a player, I would cherish them. I know they are just "things", but I sure like the Ibanez Universe guitars. I am very pleased to have found them both and am writing all this to simply cast my vote for the brand and the model.
Thank God I still have my 2027 with me. Now, if Ibanez/Steve Vai would endorse a Mahogany body for the UV line, I would be head over heals.
