    Would anyone happen to know who is making correct spec (material, size, etc) Universe decals? I have a UV7PWH that could do with a new one. Thanks.

    Going back and forth between buying a UV70P and waiting for a UV7BK, I finally found one of the latter and took the plunge. It's possible you've seen this one on ebay (Europe). The previous owner had a replacement neck built by a luthier (Jacaranda) with similar support layering seen in newer...

    Hello - I'm considering selling my 90's Ibanez UV77-MC. It's all original, has an incredible swirl, and plays perfectly. It has dings and chips, but again, the swirl makes up for quite a bit in my opinion. I'm trying to get handle on where to price it. It seems to me that the only authentic...

    Hello, I have a UV7 from the 90s with a very dirty back side of the neck. I believe I have not cleaned it in over 15 years. I have never attempted to clean it properly, as I do not know. Please, any tips on how to remove all the grit and black dirt without sanding? Thanks!

    I've got an Ibanez Universe that I'm really struggling to identify. I've had it for 20 years and it's now virtually unplayed, but I want to know the exact model before I sell it. It's unusual in that it has pyramid inlays down the neck and non-standard colouring of the pickups: the single coil...
