I have this guitar since 1992, I had the chance to pay 7200 F at the time, the big stroke of luck ... the shop could not sell it ... It is my main guitar, I almost started to learn it ...
It is very solid and never disrupts ... The sound is simply huge and warm (I mainly use the neck pickup) ... The seventh string greatly opens the possibilities of creating new agreements ... The only thing I miss this guitar is the ability to split the neck pickup, but hey, I console myself with a strat ....

Channel 24 cargo boxes with Dunlop 6140
2 humbucker pickups and a DiMarzio Blaze II single
Tone and volume knob
Vibrato Lo-Pro Edge 7
Number of models produced: 1038
The best race of all 7 strings I've tried (and I've yet tried many larger models). The neck is also narrower than UV777Bk. Against by poor access to acute because At the time that produces this model, the shape of the body at the attachment of the handle is not rounded like the Ibanez and optimize today.
Vibrato is already very efficient and accurate at the time point (normal model Vai).
The humbuckers are high and low points in his powerful and clean a Gibson Les Paul Standard. As against the simple micro does not sound very crystalline but equally effective. To realize you can just listen to the song The riddle of Passion & Warfare Steve Vai does it give you an idea.
The multicolor design does not please everybody, and is more or less successful depending on the model. Personally I love, more than I have has a color very similar to that on the album cover Passion & Warfare. This guitar is unique and rare, I'm the special trip to Sweden to buy mine (If it is not proof that it is an exceptional guitar ...).
