Hey, investigating the electronics of a newly acquired UV7BK, I noticed what I believe are way too lowly rated pots. I only managed to grab a pic of the tone pot, but am I reading this correctly? 15 K? Isn't that waaay low? I assume none of this is original... I also have to change the switch (3...
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...
All original early Ibanez Universe UV7BK Green dot. Not a closet Queen but certainly not a played out beat to hell guitar. OHSC is a little beat up but not terrible. Asking 3K US shipping only at this time.
Brief & Accurate Description of gear/guitar:
Ibanez universe 97 Silver dot. Currently has a lundgren M7 in it (old, I bought this pickup 2007/8ish hence why it looks different from the new ones that actually have a logo). Brand new lo pro 7 bridge in cosmo chrome.
Body has nicks and dents...
I am not sure and need help with this.
Did the very early green dot Universe with the original Edge 7 have black tuners or did they come in cosmo black from the very beginning?
And have toplock and string retainer always been black?
Thanks so much!
I've been eyeing reverb and ebay and the few UV7's that pop up range up towards 3000 usd. Weren't they around 1500 just a couple of years ago? It's an awesome guitar but I've never seen them being in the realm of the old 80's jems when it comes to price
New here so consider this an introduction. ^_^ I mostly play death metal and am in a band called Catatomic.
I bought my UV7BK with the green dots in 1994 as new. I got a nice discount because it had been sitting for a long time and the shop misplaced the case/candy. Later on I...

Help... mold in old UV, strong smell
I picked up this '96 green dots UV from the hard case, and it now has a strong mold smell. The white spots on the fretboard are minimal. After playing it for just a few seconds, my left hand already smells like mold (bad!), and it's hard to take...

There's a UV7BK for sale locally, it's in player condition and everything seems original, but I've got one concern about it.
The neckplate doesn't have the "Ibanez Universe" engraving, only a serial number.
The serial number is K874669 which would hint it is from 1987, but it doesn't seem to...
I own a 90's Universe whose neck is simply the best neck I've ever played in more than 20 years of guitar playing. I also happen to own a 7VWH, which is a great guitar, but it doesn't have the same neck feel of the UV, it's rather thinner and the profile just feels completely different.
So I admit it you all were right. Had some issues with the UV70P. It was a nice guitar except for the couple issues it had. I truely liked it a lot. But the issues could have gotten worse. So i sent it back. They were supposed to send me a replacment but they screwed that up. So i got a refund...
