no they wont make it for you, you have to buy them used..i heard the longer youve been playing a regular 6-string the more difficult it is to adapt to 7, i've been playing for 2 years now and i got used to my universe very fast, then again i have bigger than average hands. i dont know man i think i would get a car, get a job now and save and by the time you graduate youll own a couple of UVs!!!!

If it wasn't for the fact I need it for work, I would be keeping my UV and selling my car rather than the other way round!

Get the guitar man!

Absolutely! Get the guitar. Always new cars made, but those guitars will get fewer and fewer. I've got both a MC and PWH. And I would say the PWH is the better one. It's a lot cheaper than a MC in the same condition, so you can probably get a car too... Where to find them? E-mail me...

Cars will depreciate in value, and would eventually be scrapped. Guitars provide lifelong fulfillment.

Cars can get you killed. Guitars will make you live.

Cars cannot earn you a guitar, but a guitar can earn you a car...

So think about it... :biggrin:

Chicks dig fast cars, chicks also dig fast guitars.

So ride around in a friends car and play guitar...
