I'm checking my UV7BK '97 and mine only has a 3 way switch. I don't see anywhere on the specs pages specifically regarding the Universe's PU switch. I would have thought the Universe would have the 5 way switch like the JEMs. Even my JEM Jr. has a 5 way. The guitar has been modified - I think cosmetically only - by someone in the past. I got it pretty cheap and it seems functionally sound. I was thinking maybe someone changed the switch as well as the other changes.
