Proud Owner - My universe arrived
After a surprisingly short wait, my UV777BK arrived from the states today.
This has had two effects - my housemates are annoyed at the noise and I still have a silly grin on my face.
Most impressed with the thing too. It is 2nd hand but you'd probably never tell - scratchplatch still shiny and unscratched, no fret wear - a class act all round. Anyway here are a few observations....
Being the first 7 string I have ever played (let alone owned) it took a few minutes for the fingers to fall into the right place; and spent an aweful lot of time playing some very low chords....the neck feels a little weird at first, and playing some 'thumb over' chords proved a little tricky.
AANJ - unbelievable. The difference between the top access on my Jem is suprisingy big.
P'ups - man that bridge picku throws out a bit of level doesn't it!
Anyway - I'm going back to playing for a bit longer...
