need feedback on the UV7bk *update* GOT MY FIRST JEM/UV!!

I must be the only one in the entire
Cosmos that LOVES the appearance on this guitar (incuding the green cosmetics),
and I just got an offer to trade me one.

the deal is, I've never tried it hands on....
how is it?

They're excellent gutars - great necks, great trems etc... not the flashyest of the UV line, but cirtainly a good buy. Ive found the pickups a bit muddy, but im changing it out to an Evo 7 when i have the money; should solve the problem.
-better shred than dead-ANDY

You're not the only one!

The UV 7bk is one of my favorites too.
You won't be disappointed.

I always thought the green accents were cool.....
But I also like the Jem 777dy

You're not the only one
The UV7BK is a great guitar, I love the feel of the neck
and of course the green/black combination... You should
try the UV before you buy, because feel is a subjective
thing... you'll know in an instant if this guitar suits you...
I liked the green/black so much I decided to buy a 777VBK
as well. Here's my couple



(BTW the green stuff near the headstock is a velcro strip)

The velcro is purely cosmetic... I thought it could use a little more green near the headstock, as a side effect it silences string buzzz...

Do it man. I have always loved it since I saw all those photos of Vai with it. I got mine and it was one of the best things I ever did!

Are you going to trade the 2027 with an UV7?

If so! whatever you do, please give me a note first?
