My first UV777PBK

I'm in the middle of buying a UV777PBK. I'm 99.99% sure it is the real thing, and when i go to pay for it i'll be able to tell if it's a really cheapo cheapo fake (I have been around guitars a while). But in case it's a very good fake, what are the giveaways for a '06 PBK? If people can tell me what details to photograph, I can them post them for expert perusal if anyone would care to look. Would anyone care to look? Thanks folks. I already belong to sevenstring.org, and that is really friendly. Hope this one is too!!

I've never seen any UV fakes, just Jem fakes. I don't think many operations bother with making fake 7-strings.

I would agree with plantboy, 7V seem to be easier to sell than 7 strings, ain't they?

There are chinese fake 7 strings.

A 06 UV should have the Edge Pro trem. The tremolo is always a dead giveaway.
