Product Overview

Manufacturer's ID: UV70P-BK

The UV70P Premium model 7-string is a very close reissue to one of the original Universe designs, the UV7, from back in 1990. The iconic black and bright green livery is present and correct and the hardware has been updated with a newer Edge Pro tremolo unit and DiMarzio Blaze pickups. Even the dot fret markers are bright green!

Getting used to the extra string is actually relatively straight forward: it's just a matter of a few hour's playing and readjusting chord positions. The Universe's neck is not massive despite the added Low B string so you'll still be able to play everything you already can; you'll just be able to play MORE.

Apart from the colour scheme, it may not be too obvious that this is actually a Steve Vai signature model. He has played a number of Universe models over the years and, together with the JEM series, has produced a number of iconic instruments (he designed both ranges). The Universe was the first ever mass production model 7-string and this Premium guitar is a fitting update and tribute to the original game-changing 7-string. This ex-demo model has very light scratches on the surface and the price has been changed to reflect that. Grab a great guitar at an even better price!
Steve Vai is one of the revered few on that short list of players who have changed the way we all think about what a guitar can really do. His signature Ibanez guitars are no different: Iconic, Sublime, Awe-Inspiring, Outrageous. The Ibanez JEM/UV Series models are designed to break boundaries.
