UV77MC to the collection

Well what can I say, Ive only just realised I suffer from Gas lol. Here is a UV77MC I bought a few weeks ago from that dreaded auction site, it came from Switzerland. Its in very good condition, no damage to the body, no chips to the paint, no corrosion on the trem, all electrics in working order, it has the usual neck joint hair line crack. It even came with the original case with the tool kit and tags. The thing was set up poorly with very high action that you could get your head between but after setting to with a screw driver, a few allen keys and a new set of strings bingo its plays like a dream. The trem holds the tuning like you'd expect from an early 90's Ibanez.

Re: UV77MC to the collection

Thanks man, I've got to say im gobsmacked with how well it plays. I know it may sound crazy but theres something about early 90's ibanez guitars thats very good, the quality is just that bit better than the newer stuff, for example when setting the action up by ajusting the trem hight you can get it very low without the strings fretting out unlike on the later guitars I have where you have to mess about shimming the neck angle to achive the same. When I get a good days sun light I'll take some good close up pics and post them on here, wont leave it too long though...
