Talking An ode to my Universe

Hi,

My on-going love affair with my Universe has urged me to write a few lines dedicated to her:

----------------------------------------------------------------

Black Universe

Oh sweet black Universe, you mighty 7-string,
it is your touch that gets to me, that makes me cry and sing.
You came from far away, to the place where you belong,
where I was waiting for you, in spite of dings and dongs.
And once I held you in my arms, I finally had proof,
of how you sing and scream and cry with any kind groove,

And now you have become, for sure, the apple of my eye.
Your bright overtones and your playability, just cannot be denied.
And when my mind is gloomy, and I feel alone at night,
your fancy looks call upon me and I must hold you tight
And you surrender to me with your moaning grunts and sighs.
Then we fuse into the music and I know we'll never say goodbye...

----------------------------------------------------------------

I JUST FRIGGING L O V E my Universe!!!!!!!

Regards,

D.

PD: I have added sort of a Pentagram inlay on the spot where the VU777PBK's have the triangle. My cam is out of batteries right now, so pics will follow soon

Nice Pentagram

I never cut them, only when I record or gig with the particular guitar (else you can hear the strings beating against each other once connected). I always string my guitars like this since I started using Floyd Trems. I use my UV for practicing, without an amp, so the strings are not a problem

Besides, my cats LOVE IT when I'm playing the UV. They all sit down watching the strings wiggle

Regards,

JP

Re: An ode to my Universe

Nice UV and I like the song, pretty cool. I love my 91 UVs, I even thought about writing a song.....well, when I first acquired my PWH, I actually wrote a song called PWH but I later named it something else. The UVs are just great guitars.

Why do you think so many of us adore the monkey grip.

It's a POEM, not a song
