Ibanez Universe UV77MC

check this out.. guy wants $14k(Buy It Now) for the guitar. Supposed to be a real one Vai played.

Go to thE-bay and search Ibanez Universe and you'll see it in the listings. That's a ridiculous price, I don't care who played it. But for your hardcore collectors out there. Have at it.

Its the real deal...

It will go up in value, cause Vai's effect on the music world more importantly the guitar can never be unwritten so its a great investment...

Mikey works for Steve; it's as legit as it gets, and Steve usually gives the money to charity. I bet she could be setup to play well, if you wanted to change the strings

Re: Ibanez Universe UV77MC

I'm finding it hard to put into words just how much I want that guitar!!!!!!

Sadly, barring a lottery win or bank robbery it's not gonna happen.

I LOVE those original universes!!

I've said it before and I'll say it again...... they look so much better than the reissues!!

The reissues just don't capture the vibe of the originals.

Re: Ibanez Universe UV77MC

I'd buy it. Oh yes, I would!
And yes, I'd change strings, set it up to my personal taste, and tour it!

Re: Ibanez Universe UV77MC

Dude, this auction is totally cool, dont worry, mikey (mesker) is guy selling it, you know, THE mikey (and he's my facebook friend so yeah he said yes) . and he has kept it in GREAT condition, origial strings and all, and whoever gets it that does have it, should let rich set it up tho, THEN it would be perfect lol.


btw, good to see your still alive, nickster!

Re: Ibanez Universe UV77MC

Well, it's better than the guy on Jemsite who's listed an MKR for $10k. Steve will at least donate the money to charity.

i agree mostly ... good luck finding an MKR that isn't a beater for 2,5k,

I've seen (albeit very cool) MKRs change hands for 4000 euros in France not that long ago.

Re: Ibanez Universe UV77MC

I paid $4800 Australian for my MKR. Definately worth it.

Re: Ibanez Universe UV77MC

$4800 AUD is about $4500 in USD -about average for MKR swirls. And quite a bit different from $10k USD.

$10k is very overpriced for an MKR, considering an ATD swirl can be had in the US for under $6k.

That being said, I'd buy this Vai guitar. But not for $14,000.
