The Ibanez Universe was another innovation resulting from the design input of Steve Vai during the time leading up to the release of his Passion And Warfare album. It was one of the first seven-string models offered in standard production.

The UV777 model in black finish with a mirror pickguard and pyramid inlays is not to be confused with the earlier 1990s models, the UV7 (black with green pickups), the UV7P (white) or the UV77 (swirl finish). 

Years of Production: 1998 - present

    I've owned pretty much every Ibanez Jem, plenty of Gibsons, Jacksons and others. I find this Universe to be one of the finest instruments I have ever owned. Beautiful inlays. Straightest neck I have ever seen. Great frets. Love having a pickguard for easy pickup changes.
