This guitar has been on ebay for several weeks & has been relisted loads of times. I can't belive it hasent been brought yet & its only starting at £800 with no bids & about 8 hours to go!

I wish i had the money to get this, it's probally the cheapest you'll ever see one going for.

that model is on ebay a fair bit and thats about the going rate for it really. check out the completed listings and recent auctions for the same model have ended at £620 and £750.

it seems to be the most common UV model, and its quite a recent model too, so i guess thats why it doesnt sell as well. personally, i think it looks naff, but ive never seen one in the flesh and it might look a lot better in real life. it probably plays and sounds fine tho :wink:

Now thats a tastey burger!

I recon the uv777 looks pretty nice personally, but really all 7 string jems & universes are damn sexy! Much better than my cheap rg :oops: .

Blasphemy! They're beautiful guitars! Overpriced, but beautiful nontheless! :wink: If you could liken them to a woman, they'd be Nigella Lawson: classy looking with a huge bottom end :shock: The late 90's built ones are nicer as the finish is better. Personally, and I'm sure Leon & Lee will probably agree, I would say the original Universes (ie the black & green, white & multicoloured models which often still crop up on eBay) are superior to the ones they're churning out now.....they just feel.......better somehow.

Yeah definitely, i've played quite a few universes now, and about 3 uv77bks, and the older ones definitely "feel" superior somehow. I've got 2 from 1990, and they definitely feel miles better than the same models from 1995.
