    I picked up a UV777 today for a pretty decent price. Unsure of what year but it has the one piece maple neck rather than the 5 piece. It also came with BKP Painkiller bridge and neck pickups.

    I own an RG7321 and RGD7320Z and this just feels a lot nicer. The neck is easier to get around and it seems to resonate a bit better. The neck does feel a bit rougher but I'm putting it down to it being a bit older and more worn. It came in players condition with a few dings on the back and sides and missing covers on the back.

    This is my first experience with BKPs and I'm on the fence about the painkillers in this guitar but it has only been a few hours

    Excuse the picture quality, I don't own a proper camera.

    Snap - got one of these, but yours is much less beat up :(

    Enjoy dude - these are fantastic guitars!

    The switch to BKPs is an interesting choice - I absolutely love the Blazes in mine, and I don't think I'd consider a swap. Mind letting us know in a bit how you're getting on with them?
