Thumbs up WOW!! My Universe UV7BK is here !!!

I'm the proud owner of the Ibanez Universe UV7BK #259248 ('96, right?).

I talked about her previously. I had a previous experience with a 7-string guitar, and I didn't like it at all. But with this babe the things are different, she plays sweet... so comfortable... almost the same feel of a 6 string JEM neck... wider, of course. I'm having no difficulties at all. It's a dream.

Minimal dings here and there, barely noticeable. That piece that stays over the strings on the headstock, almost above the truss rod cover (I don't know the name of this piece) is missing, see pics. Is this a problem? The guitar stays is in tune very well even without it.

The Lo Pro trem is a tank, rubust. I feel it more solid than the newer Edge Pro, original Floyd Rose and Schaller (I know these trems). It's not set up properly to my tastes, I'll work on it during the weekend (ooh can't wait!!).

My JEM 555 BK had to go, but I still say, that's a decent guitar (with the Edge Pro II tremolo, of course). Can't compare to this Matrix-dream, though.

Interestingly, I made this comment just a few weeks ago. Destiny?

Yeah, honeymoon period, I know. I'm in love. I'M LOVIN TIS GEETAR !!!

That's killer man, I've always loved the look of this guitar. The colors make anyone else think of type-o?

Nice man And it is true, they play unlike newer 7 strings, there's just some mojo magic about the old ones!

Yeah, she is the one announced from Florianópolis.
When I saw the announce I contacted the guy immediately: "SHE'S MINE!!"
With all shipping costs, about R$ 4400. A bargain for such rare model.
Hey, I'm having difficulties to find the pipe truss rod wrench, I sent you a PM about it.
