Useless but cool Universe observation

Go down to the bottom where it shows the UV headstocks. Notice how the new UV777BK's "Ibanez logo" is at a different angle than all prior "Ibanez logos"? The "Z" in Ibanez touches the "U" in Universe where as the older models, the "Z" in Ibanez is over the "N" in universe.

It looks like the 6 string logos are a little different as well. Maybe its the new "shiny" logo or maybe somebody hit font size 12 instead of 10! lol Just a little useless observation......... (I am bored!!)

Nice catch! The bottom of the "checkmark" goes between the I and B in Ibanez also, where on all the other headstocks it's to the left of the I. I made a quick perfunctory look through the Ibanez site, and I don't see anything else like that.

Hmm, odd, I checked my '90 pwh, '97 bk turned mc, and '98 bk and all have the exact same Ibanez logo positioning. The chrome Iby on the '98 still comes down in the same place as the other two...

The 777BK is the same as all the rest in '03 now.
