Universe Black / Green Dots

I just aquired a beautiful Black Universe in a trade deal - It has green dots, pickups, knobs, and a blk/grn/blk pickguard. S/N is 000520, and it says Ibanez Universe Made in Japan on the neckplate.

Can Somebody help me with a year and a model number?

Re: Universe Black / Green Dots

Allright, its a UV7BK, which is what I thought, but I'm still not sure how to date it.

sounds like this: http://www.ibanezrules.com/catalogs/us/1991/uv.jpg (the one on the far left) seems to me, that you snagged quite a prize! The model is the UV7, they were made from 91-94 I believe. If you don't mind me asking, what did you pay for it?

Re: Universe Black / Green Dots

I'm the GM here at Reverend Guitars.

I did a trade deal with one of my endorsers - some new guitars for this universe and a1987 Jem777dy - with the palm rest! The Jem is pretty beat, but super cool. The UV is really clean, my tech is setting it up right now. I know how to date the jems, but not sure on the UV.

I've been collecting Ibanez off and on for years now - my first real guitar was an RG570 which I still have, along with many others. (Jems- PMC,GMC,7RB,FP1, and now this one)

Re: Universe Black / Green Dots

I found the answer on Rich's site:
" Except for the very first batch of 90' UV plates that began 00, UV plates are also dated by the first 2 numbers. 00 is a 90', 90 is a 90', 91 is a 91'.."
Sorry to bother y'all. I'll try to get pics up if you're interested.

Re: Universe Black / Green Dots

What kind of trem is on it? An original edge or lo pro?

Does it look like this:


or like this:



Just looking at the trem. I realize the first one is for a 6 string, but you get the idea.

Re: Universe Black / Green Dots

They're both 1st year models, and both have the original edge. The Jem even has the cover/palmrest thingy.

Guy had it listed on CL for $900. I just missed it and the JEM he also got.

LOL! Why do you think I was flipping out when I just missed them. You'll really freak when I tell you what the JEM was listed for.
