Question Trick to Getting Into a UV1000 Case?

I got a Universe and while I had it out was cleaning up the case, well I wiped around the hinges and lock and... moved the numbers I've been trying to get it by feeling the tumblers but those Japanese make some nice stuff. Also I think the sliding mechanism pushed towards the numbers is that right?

Thanks Rich you rock, after going through 000-999 I wasn't pulling hard enough in the right direction. Got it in 5min with your method.

Re: Trick to Getting Into a UV1000 Case?

A little off topic but it looks like the original posters problem was resolved.

Rich, I notice on your link the comment about JEM1000 or UV1000 case locks. I didn't know a there was a JEM1000 case. Back when I bought my Jem7vwh, about five years ago, it did not come with a case. I was told by the salesperson that the UV1000 was the correct one for the guitar. It always seemed like such a tight fit. Is the UV1000 the right case for a JEM?

The UV1000 has been the jem case since the universe was introduced, until 2003 with the j-craft cases

The UV is the same case as the JEM but about 2" longer to accomodate the extra length of the UV headstock. JEM1000 discontinued in 1990 when they introduced the UV.

Thanks!

I really like the storage space in the UV1000. I was suprized to see how little storage space is available in the prestige case thay came with my SV5470. That case seems to be built like a tank though.

I would imagine you would have to be some sort of contortionist

I don't think i could get into one as i'm a little on the stocky side
