I played one of those the other night!!
I was at the grand opening of the GC here in Orlando, where, coincidentally, I played a UV777... and bought it!!
I prefer virgin guitars, too, so while I was in the practice room playing the 7-string (when I showed them the cash, they were quick to clear a room so I could try it out!!) I scoured the guitar for defects. It had some small scratches on the back as if from rivets in someone's jeans or maybe a belt buckle. So I tried to deal the manager down, and they wouldn't budge off $1,550. I told them that I wouldn't take delivery of that one - I wanted a brand new one, sealed in the case with every scrap of plastic still attached or I wasn't going to buy the guitar. All of a sudden, they were cooperative. My new UV777 will be here on Wednesday so I can pick her up. I'm willing to wait a few days for that kind of a deal!
Glad to see the guitar got a good home. Enjoy her!!
