    I'm listening to Modern Primitive looking at this thread :) very nice ambience. Gotta love the JEMs man, a real turning point in the history of rock / instrumental guitar music and guitar design.

    Hopefully I will be able to collect one of those myself some day

    My UV777BK (2000 build) is in pieces right now while I put in new pickups, pots and tuners along with a full fret redress. How does yours compare to the UV77PSN? If I had one of the 25th anniv Universes that would be it.

    Hard to say at this point. I'm not afraid to really bang on the 777bk because its a "player" at this point, on the other hand the PSN doesnt have a mark on it yet so I tend to go easier or at least be careful. The PSN feels bigger in general, square heel and its probably a pound heavier than the 777bk, little more bite, but i still don't really know the ins and outs of it compared to the other, and now this is definitely a run on sentence.

    They both sound like UV's i guess for lack of a better answer.

    OK, crappy picture and there's a DNA in the middle, but that's the picture at hand :

    Not the best pic but here's my beaten up 1990 UVBK, might be cosmetically a war veteran but she plays as amazing as she did day she was made

    My '91 Green Dot. Beat all to hell (not by me; I bought it used and rescued it), but still plays and sounds amazing. I keep it tuned down a half step for that Morbid Angel goodness.

    Man there is some awesome stuff going on here!

    Here's my 2004 UV777P BK, with a set of calibrated BKP Warpigs, ceramic in the bridge. Might eventually get a Sinner for the middle, looks a little weird without the nickel bolts.

    Got some warpigs in a skervesen 7. I just love those pickups, cleans are splendid. How do you like them in your UV ?

    Awesome! Honestly, I love them! They're definitely a step above the original Blazes.

    I posted a thread with some sound clips, here are the clips: https://soundcloud.com/horussound_jeremy/sets/dimarzio-blaze-vs-bkp-ceramic-warpig


    Overall they're tighter, less bloated, more middy, more clear and better string separation. There was no trade-off to me haha

    The lead tones on the bridge pickup are just....out of this world :shred: :metal::yesway::bowdown:

    Beautiful pic actually. I am most jealous of that DNA. The few for sale are like $10K USD these days. Truly the height of Ibanez's build quality IMHO.

    Thank you, didn't want to brag though :ugh:

    Swirls always look like so much better in person, therefore the crappy picture ;) And I was very lucky with the DNA, right place, right time, right man to buy from :bowdown:

    Back to the UV, the RE isn't the best player, even setup by a pro, but the 25th is a great player through and through.
