thinking of selling my Universe

I have an Ibanez Universe and I'm thinking about selling it. I got it around 1993, I need to know what a fair price would be.

I hope this picture works, I'm not much good at computer stuff.

Re: thinking of selling my Universe

I think it would have been a little difficult to pick that particular guitar up in '93

1994 would be very difficult also. It's a 1997 model.

Re: thinking of selling my Universe

Last one I got was about 900$ but it was not in the best condition. Mint I'd say 1-1200$, but you'll be looking at roughly 1000$ to be honest.

However, it is the one model that people will want that don't like green dots, swirls, flashiness etc. It's the most understated universe, so it's more desirable to people who are jemsite fanatics to be honest.

I'd go ask at sevenstring.org, a few people there have them.

Or, you could always shoot me a PM with how much you want for it, as I am always interested in old UV's!

Actually I would say 800-900 tops, as it is the most commonly found used one and noone seems to want one without pyramids...
