what would you do (question about UV's)
I'm new here, and the reason why i've joined is because i'm looking to buy a universe styled guitar in the next couple of months. I really want something unique and special, and not something thats just off the shelf, so to speak. Also, I want something thats QUALITY.
I really love the UV77MC's, but since i have a budget of 2 grand, i don't think i'll beable to come across one. So, I can either purchase an already existing UV (a UV7Bk, UV7PWH, or UV777) and customize it to my liking by changing out the pickguard, or putting bobbin toppers on the pickups, OR, perhaps i could get a fully custom guitar from a small builder.
The advantage of getting a used guitar and customizing it would be perhaps saving some money, as i don't really care about nicks and scratches and what not, while still getting a unique looking guitar.
I guess my question is this: if it were up to you, what would you do?
