Possible Universe customization question

I have an older black Universe that was bought for me back on 02/23/93 and I'm thinking about customizing it, but I am having second thoughts. Do these guitars (7-strings) or mine in particular (black seems to be everyone's favorite ) appreciate in time? I'm just wondering, because everything on it is stock and I don't want to devalue it.

Sadly your model is the cheapest Universe you can find these days. I'd say get it modded to your liking!

Whose to say it's the cheapest? I've seen the UV7BK sell for as much or more than some PWH's. Besides, economically while it might be the least expensive sometimes, it's still every single bit as good of quality. Whether it's a UV7BK, or a UV777BK or any Universe, if you love the guitar but want to make it more your own personal guitar, it's worth doing. I've modded UV7BK's as well as UV777BK's. I know people have sent UV77MC's into ATD for new swirls too. I think it's a fantastic guitar, I'd do whatever you want to it

I never questioned the quality.

Obviously, a mint BK will be more expensive than a regular WH, but I think we can agree than in the same condition, the BK will be cheaper. Anyway, my point was the BK isn't by any means a huge collectable value, so why not mod it?
