NGD!!!!! '00 UV777 Universe!!!!

OMG, I not only now have a JEM/UV but I also have a 7-string. My wife kind of forced my hand buying this because she knew I had been looking at it on CL and felt bad because I spent last month's bonus on brakes (dang, Brembo's are expensive)

It is a 2000, in great condition, almost no fretwear and just a couple of bruises and did I mention, ITS A 7-STRING!!!

Anyone know where I should look to figure out how to play a 7-string???





Better pics when the sun shines again.

Great guitar Satchmo :-)

I've had this model for a couple of years now and still love it.. They're a pleasure to play. I love the low B for real mean chords and riffs, Can't beat it.

Awesome guitar! Congrats, she looks awesome!

As for playing one. Play it for a month or two and it should start feeling a tad more normal, at least that was the case for me.

Re: NGD!!!!! '00 UV777 Universe!!!!

Yeah, there really is no "learning" how to play a 7-string...You just adapt to it till it's a part of your every day playing....So much that you feel lost on a 6er...

I only have 1 6er, and that's for dust collection.

Re: NGD!!!!! '00 UV777 Universe!!!!

Yep, you guys are correct, seems like you just end up incorporating the string into whatever your doing.

What is surprising is how fast I adapted to the larger fretboard, it doesn't really bother me at all but my 540R is going to feel dinky compared to this thing.

That is the biggest problem for me. I still play the wrong string occasionally

Hey Satchmo..... Are you selling your bmc swirl? (the one in your avatar pic) That $hit is to die for.

Macka, I was...until the wife said that I should build it and the house would help defray the cost.

I love her.

Her exact words were, "Out of all the guitars that have came and went, that is the one I want you to keep the most" so..... she even suggested that if I dont build it anytime soon, building a glass case and showing it until I do get it built. it's art.

Re: NGD!!!!! '00 UV777 Universe!!!!

Ummm, well...I am in B I guess. The low string is tuned to B with the rest E standard.

Never thought about "other strings" before. The guitar itself is freaking amazing. The previous owner had the trem at a weird angle, high up and dropped into the cavity. Had to raise it a bit and adjust spring tension. It is still higher than what I would like but not by much but at least now the trem sits how it should.

Sonically, I soooo missed an RG style guitar. it just has a growl and tone I cant coax out of a 540R. The middle pickup is even usable and the out of phase 2 & 4 are playable too. Now I have to go back through my POD settings to get the most out of it.

Very impressed with the quality of this thing but then, it is the most expensive ($ List) that I have ever owned.

And yes, I have the coolest, most understanding, loving wife ever.
