Universe '90 Trem

Hi,

does anybody know, Ibanez Universe made in 1990, equipped with 7 string Edge tremolo, or with 7 string Lo-Pro Edge? ... or can be with both?

Thanks!

Re: Universe '90 Trem

Technically a 1990 UV should have an EDGE7. That is the spec for a 90. Not that there probably aren't transitional models, but I tend to think most have been replaced with LP's over the last 24 years than were stock to begin with.

Re: Universe '90 Trem

and actually which 7 string trem is better -7 string Lo-pro or 7 string Edge?
... Uv with Edge are more valuable, as i know (or think ) or not?

Re: Universe '90 Trem

Personally, I prefer the Lo-Pro 7 because I find it more comfortable. Both are great units, but the Edge 7 feels kinda sharp on my palm.

As for price, I'm not really sure. I haven't seen a big difference in price between the two. The Edge 7 is certainly much rarer, but I doubt it's more valuable unless it's a really really low number serial.

Re: Universe '90 Trem

An edge-7 on a silver dot MAY cost a few dollars more than one equipped with a LP-7. The trems have a slightly different feel, but neither is superior to the other in function or stability.

Re: Universe '90 Trem

It's kinda like Audi or BMW...(OE vs LP). I like that Vai uses an OE on EVO but I think it should ultimately come down to personal preference. I like that the OE7 is super rare so I would lean towards that one bearing in mind that I am completely satisfied with an LP.

Not to nitpick, but the Edge 7 never came on the silver dot. The silver dot only came factory with a Lo-Pro Edge 7.
