Dylan - have you seen Demolition Man? Can you imagine how much fun it would be if we all got along?

Be well!

Ok. see, i just thought it took a few more coats. And red being more expensive? no crap. buy a red car. 6 months and two driving tickets later, look at your auto insurance.

Actualy, I think red cars have lower insurance, because they stand out more, and people avoid them. This might be counterbalanced by speeding tickets though. . .

i havent really tried the UVs although I have tried a 7620. To be honest i think that they are both great, BUT, if i could have a 7620 or a UV777P, I would go for the UV every time.

OK here's some of my reasoning, if you can call it that:

Pro 7620:
I don't like single coils so that's a plus for the 7620.
Slightly nicer neck profile for me.
AANJ (ok, PBK has that too).
No pickguard, hate them.
More discrete/classy look. Especially compared to the 7BK and 7VWH and...yes, the 77MC.

Pro UV
Better QC.
Slightly better pickups but would just as the 7620 have to be ridden of those DiMarzios in favour of something more...nicer.
Not discontinued (PBK) :\

Cons 7620/UV
They "both" have inlays. Especially the fading pyramid inlays are ghastly ugly :)
They "both" have too many controls, I want neither tone nor volume pots, just an on/off single throw volume mini-switch.

No one cares but hey...

I belive that the UV777PBK and the RG7620 are both equally amazing guitars..........to different people. You see, Nu-metalers (like myself) would perfectly go for the 7620 (im trying to get 1 2nd hand) although Vai fans (like myself!! ) would go for the UV. The prob is for me, i like both, So Im stuck for a while

Hey, guys... i know you're new and you mean well and really want to participate, but before you post to a topic, just take a look at the date of the last post.

Topics that are more than a month old tend to be stale and don't need to be resurrected. Unless you have timely or new information to add, dredging up all these two- and three-month-old topics just brings up old conversations that had long been resolved and/or forgotten.

And, there was an RG760, BTW.
That is so subjective that I prefer the RG7620 to the UV777P.
And I had both at home, side by side, setup by me... same amp, same gear...
