UV777 Black or Green ?

Alright, Final update.
Also adding a shot with the FP that tells much more how it really looks like.

What do you think?

I personally think white would look the best.

Green with a black trem would look great!

True, Black Hardware would look good with Black Hardware!

I have some black hardware I might trade for your chrome.

Re: UV777 Black or Green ?

The Small Flat Rate box from USPS is $24 to ship to Australia. It has a max weight of 4 lbs. In order to fit a trem in it, you'd have to pull the sustain block off, but you could probably cram everything in there and it should weigh less than 4 lbs.

Re: UV777 Black or Green ?

Might be a little bit more to send from here but I'm used to it.
Wanna do it?

Re: UV777 Black or Green ?

I might-
I need a Chrome Lo Pro 7 for a build I have most of the parts for.
I have a rear route UV body that I’m thinking of making a 7 string version of the FP2 out of.
I’ve ordered the Red/Black pickups like my 6 string JEM FP2 has.
I’m also getting another square heal UV neck this weekend.
I’ll get the Red/Sliver fretboard put on one of my UV necks for it.

The only thing holding me back is that I already have the Chrome tuners and locknut.
I only need the trem really.

Let me think on it-

Re: UV777 Black or Green ?

No probs Sebastian, thanks for considering it.

Don't know if that helps, but I might be easier for you to sell that extra chrome tuners set you'd have than me here in Australia (and I don't mention how "easy" it would be to get a set of black tuners here lol)

EDIT : by the way you're a proper Ibanez freak haha

Cosmo 7 Lo Pros are long gone.
His site hasn't been updated to show zero in stock and 0 on the way.

I was going to buy one from him for a project.

Black, Chrome and Gold are the only choices at the moment.

Re: UV777 Black or Green ?

I ordered a lo pro 7, and his reply was

"Cosmo or black, $330 for the kit - $290 for just the trem itself
The nut is only going to be available in cosmo now - $125
The tuner are $95 cosmo, $85 black"

Hence I ordered a full Cosmo set as I wanted a matching nut...
Are you sure ?

He did mention we needed to get it from his distributor.
