Universe Trem

Was the Edge trem ever used on the early production runs of the Universe? Looking at Vai's swirls back in 1990, it seems they weren't the "standard" Lo Pro design?

Re: Universe Trem

After a bit more digging, looks like Ibanez ran the first year production on the 7 string Edge and then the Lo-Pro from '91 onwards.

Yep, the Edge 7 was on the very earliest UV's, before they came out with the LoPro.

I own a '91 UV7BK with a 7 string Edge.



Yes, I've posted it here before, and I've made some progress of fixin' her up!


No damage found!



Stamps look legit, weird paper shim on body

Headstock before:


Headstock with proper decal, and a glass-smooth polishing!

Hopefully, soon. I just ordered a new truss rod cover, & pickguard for it. I took out the EMG707 that was in the bridge, and will replace that with either a Blaze, D-Activator, or Crunch Lab pickup, haven't decided yet.
