New Universe for 2K4, anyone, anyone?

Hello all,
Does anyone else want to see a new Universe for 2004? I think the UV777BK is getting old. It's been around sincewhat, mid-97? They should get with Steve to make a new one. Maybe one like Stevie's EVO, all white w/ the gold hardware and vine of life inlay, or maybe do something radical like the OLDER UV's. It would be sweet if they did the Vai2KDNA as a new Uni, I'd hop all over that. let me know what you guys think.

Oh, I think we will be treated by some new pretty sig models in 2004.
Just a case of being patient and waiting I spose!

And the price tag

I don't see how they could top the UV777BK. Another color with the same styling would be nice.

I'd like to see a cheaper Uni without all the cosmetic trimmings. Maybe a plain black body with a mirror pickguard, sort of a DBK without the gooey textured finish. But then people would probably call it a 555 Universe Jr *LOL*

Hey Darren, have you been swirling bodies for Ibanez lately?

i'd love to see a transparent universe with a coloured tint or even multi coloured tints. that would be cool, not necessarily great sounding or cheap but cool.

I'd like to see a Universe in a weired burnt pattern of sorts to be honest.

or even better, that Aluminium grate stuff that Hetfield has on one of his...

that would rule

I'd do that if I could find one. I've only ever seen three universes since 1991 and none of 'em was less than three grand. Living in the antipodes sucks

Oh no, no it's great. If you already have a stable of droolworthy guitars. If you don't, you'd better get used to living on toast. Checked out VHW prices in Oz yet? *shudders*
