Cool NGD "Double Whammy"!! JEM 505 and 1990 UNIVERSE UV7PWH /(^^)/

Fellow Ibby connoiseurs! I have just landed myself a mint JEM505 in white AND on top of that, a whole 1990 Universe UV7PWH Oh my gosh I'm at a loss for words as I type this...
My UV is ALL original, hardware, electronics, everything except the body colour which was changed to black by the previous owner after a big scratch ended up on the body. He said he took it to the same person who did the Oasis guitar custom paint job in the UK. It doesn't end there though. Mr. Vai himself signed her!!!!!! I can't begin to describe how AMAZING my UV is, wow, I see now why the original UV's are so sought after and the absolute best. The fact that she's signed by the man himself makes me all weak at the knees... The JEM505 is so amazing too, save for the stock V series pickups (EVO's going in asap).

Nice Score!

Definitely dig the refinish, makes it more unique and gives it a bit of a strat vibe. God, i need a block heel UV in my life....

HNGD!

Thanks man!! Huge score indeed. I never owned a UV. In fact a year or so ago I missed out on an amazing UV777BK that went for a really low price. I just bought my 1527 so I didn't have money for it but now look how things played out for me - a whole 26 year old classic UV7 signed by my hero Steve Vai

It does look unique with this paint job but tbh I thought about reverting it back to the original PWH. Looks beautiful either way though.

Hope you get one too seen any for sale near you?

Hey Jim, thanks a lot man!! I know right?! It's a proper, Prestige level JEM MiJ just like the 7VWH which it's closest too. I bet it's 'underrated' due to it's V series pickups? I agree - the V series definitely don't do it justice but, Ibanez wanted to price it below the Evo equipped 7V so they had to compromise somewhere. Only things I would have liked them to add are a black vine inlay on the fretboard and scalloped frets from 21-24. What do you think?

Apart from that, she plays absolutely amazingly.

Then there's my '90 UV7PWH signed by Mr. Vai... she's on another level of SUPERB. Still can't believe I got both
