UV7BK vs UV70PBK

anyone had them both?
It's hard to find solid info on the older one UV7BK.
I would like to know what changes where made other then the DiMarzio Blaze pick ups in the new model...

thanks
J.

edit: just found this http://www.jemsite.com/articles-menu...tring-guitars/
and so it seems the UV7BK also has blaze pickups?

Re: UV7BK vs UV7PBK

This can help, maybe?

http://ibanez.wikia.com/wiki/UV7

They all have the Blaze II's. Keep in mind that the early 1990's UV7BK, UV77MC, and UV7PWH had the Edge 7 tremolo which is less comfortable than the Lo-Pro Edge 7, but a great tremolo, nonetheless. This was changed to the Lo-Pro 7 mid 1990 and remained throughout. Also, the neck dimensions aren't consistent. I had two BK's recently and decided to measure the necks. They were the same width, but one was 2mm thicker throughout! They both played great, you really can't go wrong with an early UV.

The UV777PBK has changed a few times. Notably, the tremolo and the neck. Also, the later ones are said to have a better looking pyramid logo on the body.

Re: UV7BK vs UV7PBK

Hm...title says uv7pbk, but I think you're right. I'm going to assume he means the UV70P. If so, they're nice guitars. However, they are premiums. So, not Japanese made. I don't think you can really compare the two. They aren't made for the same market.

Re: UV7BK vs UV7PBK

yes title was a typo, see the title of my first post.
I got a UV7BK offered for 750€ which seems quite cheap for a UV...
I'm don't realy know much about 7-string nor UV's I do have a 77FP Jem which I love and was actually looking for a 777VBK when i bumped into this one... I friend of mine is looking for a new 7-string so I'm gonna pass it on to him, but want to make sure he gets the same high standard quality as with buying a Jem...

Re: UV7BK vs UV7PBK

So you're asking about the old 7 string with the green dots and the black UV with the mirrored pickguard?

Re: UV7BK vs UV7PBK

I don't know if anyone that has the old UV7BK Green Dot wants a UV70P.
The old UVs are much better.
