RG2027 VS Universe UV777 - Which should I get?

Hi
I've been wondering...since the RG2027 is in its last batch of production...I would try to grab one from rich once the bucks come in...but I am still contemplating on the UV777, I tried it at a local store...the feel is great..in fact more comfortable than the 1077XL. But the b string tends to sound really muddy somehow..but the 1077 didnt have that problem...However, I've yet to try a 2027...I am sure there are many out there who own one...care to share their experience? Its either the UV777 or the 2027 for me I guess...comments?

well i have a 2027xvv and i love it !

i think the feel is superb (althought jay wasn't convinced about the neck), the sound is good (even with the stock pups) althought i am changing them (but i always do)

and like you say they are going out of production ! but i think they are releasing the same guitar this year in black ! (moire rock i guess) so there isnt the rush really

try em both out and make a choice !

Sure they're both very fine axes..., but I'd go for the 2027. Most of all because they're out of production.
I don't think the UV777 will get out of production soon, So when you bought the 2027, you can start saving for the UV... *:biggrin:

The 1077 is also a fine axe, but still on another level. I would buy the XL if I plan to downtune my guitar. (getting rid of the sloppy B-string when downtuned).

But that's just me.
Be sure to play em both and make a good choice.

I'd go for the 2027 as well. One of you last chances to get a piezo7 with a kewl trem.

But again, go for whichever one you play and fall for...

Agreed,

Go with what feels best to you...Although you won't get the versatility of the piezo bridge with the UV ...I think the 2027 is also a beautiful looking guitar too, I really wasn't sold on the UV neck when I tried one out

Peace!

Hmm?? Are they gonna produce another 2027 in black??? I thought it is only available in violin burst..care to elaborate on that? I thought this is gonna be the final production due to lack of sales...or do u mean this last production of 2027s are in black finish?

Black 2027 is an overseas model. I don't think it's coming back, at least I haven't heard anything.
