Alright, here are the pictures of my non-shining K7. The quality isn`t best, because I shot it with my phone, but it`s clearly visible.
Behold the anomaly:

I asked about those shining dots on Ibanez forum and they said that not all of K-7s were made with shining dots. Also one of the guys from there said that some of you here on sevenstring should probably know more. So was there some line of these guitars made with black dots???

Nice pics! Regarding the white line... this is because of the special finish on this guitar. You can scratch it with anything immediately, plus the wood is really soft if that makes sense. So you need to either be extremely careful all the time or just not care.

thanks, yeah I've stopped caring about the finish after i found a few chips of paint missing. Its just annoying not knowing how they got there. I have been pondering the idea of a refinish possibly...

Another little change on the ApexII, now with lockingtuners for easier restringing





But there is no real me: only an entity, something illusory................

I was just thinking... wouldn't it be kinda awesome detail if they had 3 skunk stripes instead of 2 in the neck? To be more consistent with the whole Adidas thing

I'm not a Korn fan but the K-7s look awsome mahogany bodies and high output pickups usually make for a heavy metal machine.

Here's my Apex1 after pickup change. JB7 on the bridge and 59 7 on the neck position. There's also coil-tapping for 59 on the volume knob.

Those are two incredibly different guitars to compare. They have different pickups, electronics, body woods, and neck shapes.

Need help with setting up a trem?
Need info on your Ibby?
Live in Milwaukee? Please feel free to message me.

I actually have both UV777 and the Apex1. They are 2 totally different guitars for sure. I found the Universe much more suitable for shredding, soloing, and standard tuning (I've attempted to down-tune the UV and tend to get a muddy sound with the Blaze pickups) and the Apex (still tuned down a full step) for my metal mayhem desires which cuts through great with the PAF's. I love the versatility of the Universe, so many different sounds with the tone and pickup selection. So it really depends on what you are going for. I love playing things from jazz to heavy metal, and those 2 guitars in combination fit all those styles.
