Caddy? Exactly! But this Car was like gold,silver,green,red,blue,etc. flaked white pearl.
It's a very limited color.You look at it one way and you can see a rainbow of colors, and the if look at it another way, it looks silver or gold. Hard to explain.
Anyway it's pretty much a "white" version of the JS 90th.

I think your idea of the VWH is cool. Go for it.

Im an auto detailer. I worked on a brand new 2005 Pontiac Bonneville with this
White Pearl finish that changes as you look at it. It's sorta like the JS 90th.
Very beautiful color.
Yeah man,, I had actually thought of as well. I seen a really nice Caddy with that color,,,it would be either that a powder white or whatever white that is that is on the VWH. I actually had also thought of doing vines on the neck and adding gold trem and hard wear,,,make it look like a VWH with out the monkey grip of course.

Glad I opted for the Universe...it ended up being cheaper than a Carvin, and I don't think it will drop in value much (unless I do some serious damage to it or something).

I think it was the right decision for what I'm going to be using it for. I was going to just buy a Carvin, but I'm glad I posted here first!
Me too! The Carvin's are nice, don't get me wrong, but the UV is a very special instrument. The 7620 is, too. I'm glad you got something you really like at a good price. My Carvin, BTW, was $500 even ;-)

Never going to get rid of it. It's anniversary is coming up. Think I'll polish her.
Thanks for your compliment.

What would be cool is if they did a Wilky/hipshot style trem on them, and added the Fishman electronics.

It'd give a lower priced alternative to the EBMM JPM.
Yeah, they'd take away a LOT of the EBMM market, I think.

You'll enjoy it. UV all the way.

Well, you've already bought your guitar (Congrats!) but the Carvin is a nice guitar. As has been said before, it's easy enough to replace the pickups on a Carvin. They do have thicker necks and licensed Floyds, which work well. I use the trem a bit, but I don't go berserk with it, and it works like a charm. The Ibanezes are better, I think, for shredding. Both guitars are fine for almost all kinds of guitar work and musical styles, though the Ibanez might be better to beat up. If you were going to play more jazz I might suggest the Carvin. You really can't lose with either, but for whammy bashing and shredding the Ibanez is the better suited instrument.

Problem solved!

Just bought a UV777BK instead!

Hooray for that certain online auction site!

My Carvin ships on the 25th, and I sold an RG1527 to get it. So I'll let you know! I did not get a trem though; that's actually the reason I sold the 1527.

Thanks for the input thus far!

I think I'm going to pick up an old used UV7BK instead of either one of those guitars.

Will hold it's value nicely and has all the features that I want and it will end up being cheaper for me. Also nicer looking!

Haven't managed to track down an rg1527 that will be cost effective (I'm in Canada and taxes/duty/shipping/etc are killer from some stores.

FYI, my budget is something under $1200 USD.
