Hi Ant, I have one I'm considering selling, it's number 5 of 100 and it's lovely. I'm based in the North West of England so shipping will be fine. Do you have an offer in mind and do you want to see some photos?
Hi Rich, you can work out the edition number from the serial number just like any other ibanez, as far as I know these are numbered 1-100. Plus it originally came from your shop, so maybe you could vouch for it.
There are no edition numbers for UVRE's. Everybody believes they have #1 or #5 because of the way the Sugi uses serial numbers. The FIRST UV77RE was I09501. - I September - 09 - year - 5 - Model - 01 production number of that model for that month. ie. I09502 would be the second built. If you have J***** you'd have to have Sugi's records to know how many were built in September to know which yours is, and so forth. The number does not matter, only the swirl.
No problem, I'm glad of the information, I wouldn't want to mislead anyone. It's a beautiful swirl and I have the certificate of authenticity and the original purchase receipt from you, so hopefully between us we haven't put @ANTS5150 off. Although that said it will be wrench if I do sell it...
