And rich, the original owner, alex, said you sold this to him, so you probably know best what it is, I'd love some input !

Too much yellow. It's an MKR. ATD's used very little yellow.

Re: Is this MKR or ATD?

ya i figured it was a mkr as well, but the black and white in the swiirl really threw me off. an mkr just sold for about 2,000 usd so this price is a little steep for me.

There are good MKR's and there are bad. The good ones are worth the money.

Bryan, i f you think on a swirl UV's go for ATD, yes you will pay a bit more.
my opinion they look by far better than an MKR.

Re: Is this MKR or ATD?

A real shame that the back of the guitar isnt the front, its a much better pattern.

Re: Is this MKR or ATD?

Ya I hear ya about that, the back often is better than the front.

And thanks shai, I agree. I'm gassing for an atd uv so bad and have been for a while, the only ones I see up for sale are the re's and they don't interest me, I want the first edition real deal dude! And I also just missed out on that repainted uv777gr on eBay!! It sold for 1200$ :/ which is a steal, all the guy has to do is get the ugly black paint off...
I'm having trouble acquiring any kind of uv aside from the pbk I want a swirl so bad

Re: Is this MKR or ATD?

The MKR you posted about really is at a fair price. I don't think it's a matter of being tough to get, it's a matter of you coughing up the appropriate amount of dough

With Jems, you can find them for steals from time to time if you're patient. That isn't likely to happen with a UVMC.

Re: Is this MKR or ATD?

Fairly sure you're imagining that price. That might have happened one time.
