    So I guess the answer to "Where'd all the clean silver dots go?" is here on this forum, anyone know how many were made? They're almost the rarest UV it seems, maybe the 777GR is but i can't call it.

    Also, I wonder if ibanez has a new MIJ UV comin soon outta the Fujigen factory....

    Nothing at all, I just think they're due to put one out. It's weird seeing no MIJ 7-string Vai models out from them atm (other than the 25ths), I'd love to see a maple board.

    This arrived at my house this afternoon. Might not be anything special to you guys with more 7 and Universe experience but it's my very first 7, first time I've ever played one in fact. This thing is better than I expected. I've owned a cheap Ibanez 6 string years ago but this is unreal in terms of quality. It's an '06 model. The fret work is far better than my Gibsons. I don't think I've been so excited about a guitar. Really looking forward to exploring the 7 string Universe. Apologies for the phone pic but I just had to get this out there.

    Yeah, I agree. Although, I would be happy to see more Ibanez MIJ 7 string guitars in general. They seem to have cut back quite a bit. :noplease:

    Love these guitars. Just wondering, how heavy are these compared to standard RGs?

    Thanks! It's obviously still a ridiculous looking guitar with the monkey grip and all, but the cosmo hardware damps down the crazy a bit.

    Haha, yes, I mean that in the most endearing way. Most of my stuff is more traditional. It's kinda fun having the Jem. Wish I had a swirl like yours, but I'm not that ballin'!
