Re: UV777 Black/Green re-issue?
I'm a long-time fan of this model - it was the first Universe that I purchased brand new in 1991. It's still with me to this day... since then I've added an RG7-620GN and a UV777BK... as far as 7-strings go.
I'd be interested in a reissue that featured the AANJ... but I suspect that there'd be a certain intangible 'something' that would be quite different. One thing for certain; the thickness of the finish would change things up, as they used to be massively thick... I find that my UV7BK and my Jem777LNG are both VERY loud acoustically... and have a certain special something to the way that they resonate while being played in general.
I don't know what the magic recipe is there.
Nonetheless, I'd be quite eager to test drive (and probably want to acquire) a reissue/update version.
