Question FS: Ibanez Universe UV777PBK in UK

Unfortunately it has come to a time that i'm going to have to sell a beloved guitar, and it has to be the one that is worth the most.

My windows are falling out of my house and i've had a quote for £1800 and I just haven't got that sort of money kicking around.(boo hoo) So my prized Universe is going to have to go, I cannot have such luxuries with the wind and rain coming in.

Its possibly the best universe you'll ever see of the current style.

It has:
A brand "spanking" New neck
A brand "spanking" New Lo-Pro Trem and Locking Nut.
A brand "spanking" New Mirror pickguard from Pickguard Paradise
Brand New Gotoh Tuners
A Brand New Dimarzio Blaze Middle Pickup
A Brand New Dimarzio Black Clip lock strap
Dimarzio push/pull tone pot for extended pickup options
New rear cavity covers
New Truss Rod Covers in Black and Chrome
A brand "spanking" New Mirror pickguard from Pickguard Paradise

(The truss cover screws have not been drilled so you might want to leave it this way, so I won't drill them yet).

The extended options are normal operation in all five positions plus bridge pickup always on when in pulled state.

Free delivery within Fifty (50) Miles of Castleford WF10 5** with buy it now.

I'm in no hurry to sell.

Price is £1000 ono


Any questions or further photos please ask.

Come for a play on it first, see what they think, i've got a pod xt to run it through connected to some massive house speakers, no combo or head though so if you want to bring your own along feel free.

As you asked Yes, these tend to go for around £800-£900 in good condition and with a hard case. Anyways, good luck with the sale

I think that sounds about right normally. I understand about the case thing.

This is in great shape though. New Lo Pro and Everything.

The neck is To Die For, and it does have extra pickup options.

I just wish that someone could give it a go.

If it came down to it I could either get a case or knock the equivelent money off it.

It seems crazy that as a guitar that is like £1300 new can lose so much and be in pretty much the same shape it left the factory.

Re: FS: Ibanez Universe UV777PBK in UK

Well, one of the reasons why it may not be selling (and I'm saying this as an interested party) is why the neck, trem, pickguard and hardware have been replaced? Care to share why those parts have been replaced, and why the pickguard is not an ibanez pickguard? I'm curious to find out.

Because when I got it it was just a body with a broken pickguard, originally it was just going to be a frankenstein, but instead I spent top dollar on buying new parts. It all good. The pickguards are almost impossible to get hold of hence Pickguard Paradise. Although I still have the broken one!

All the benifits of new, with added fact its a Lo-pro not an edge pro.

Thanks

Re: FS: Ibanez Universe UV777PBK in UK

Alright I realise I might be asking too much!

What about £850 with free stand only.

Come and play it, if you like it take it if you don't run like the wind.

I've decided that I cannot even play six strings let alone seven.

So come and get it.

Nine hundred if you want the delivery.
