Smile Two Whole Different Universes

Hey Jemsters!

Ive been playing around with some Universe parts and a little powder coating too!

This first guitar has a Universe UV7PHW neck on it with a black truss rod cover on it.
The body was made by Area 51 Guitars.
It has a Dimarzio EVO7 in the neck a Blaze single in the middle and a Dactivator in the bridge position.
All the hardware is real Ibanez stuff.

This guitar was bought with a UV77MC neck on the UV7BK body.
I powder coated all the hardware and added a pink knob to Jazz it up a bit!
I might do a Pink strap button for the one on the upper horn.
I was also thinking of Powder coating all of the pickguard screws Pink and Green alternating.

Well, its different. Good choice on the PWH body being rear-routed, though. Honestly, it looks a lot like the new APEX 200, which also has the square heel.

Yeah a little-

I like the Pyramids on mine better.
Having more white is nice too!

Good job man. It looks interestingly 'alien'. Btw, did you also powder coat the pup covers? Any effect on sound?

No, all the pickups are the standard Dimarzio bobbins.
The bobbins are plastic, powder coating can only be done to metal.
