How does an RG8527 compare to UV?

I've been looking at an UV for my next 7 and was wondering how it compares to the JCustom RG8527 (which I already have).

Has anyone had a chance of trying out both?

You're comparing a 6 string to a 7.....New Universe or older? Square heel or AANJ Uni??? Lots to consider......

8527=Mahog with a maple top (paper thin though)
UV neck profile is "slimmer"
I like the playability of the UV better but the overall look and feel of the 8527 more (especially the DK-b trans blacks ones)
