New Guitar Day: UV777PFSM

Hey Folks,
just finished putting together my latest project. Have had most of the bits for several years and finally managed to get the body I wanted, after many expensive failures.

Specs:
Thick flamed-spalted-maple top, over bubinga stripe and mahogany back.
UV777PBK neck
Ebony Dials
Dimarzio Evo7 in Bridge
Dimarzio PAF7 in the neck

neck needs some time to readjust to tension again, its been 5 years without strings waiting for this day.

The sound is truly immense, clips and vids to follow later.

Steve

Damn, that looks sooooo good. Congratulations, it's awesome. I would replace the screws for the switch with some black ones as a last detail.

I placed an order with EKG back in 2005, two and a bit years later I recieved a really poor quality body, said he would remake it and send me a new one. Never heard from him again and never got my money back.

Rather then give up I got into talks with several builders over the next couple of years. Then decided to try out Jaden. I saw the plank of spalt I wanted on the bay, bought it and had it sent to Jaden as he had the mahogany and bubinga already. 6 months or so later and here it is!!! The build quality is really superb.

Just adjusted the pickup and trem height, intonation needs to be re-set but isnt too bad. Lots and lots of sustain. Big tone, particularly noticable on the treble strings, the G-string really pops
