    Default My new Universe

    I am so happy with my latest purchase! I found a used Ibanez Universe at Sam Ash for around $1200 that was in great shape. I wound up getting it about 3 weeks ago and I must say it is amazing. I'm not into Nu Metal and the whole 7 string grinding style of playing (although I respect it and actually like Korn)... however I have found it great for the style of music I play which is a balance of classic rock, metal, instrumental rock and alternative. It was really hard at first to get used to having that low B string on there but I have been working with it a lot and am finally getting the hang of it. The bridge, neck and single coil pickups all sound fantastic. You really have to work on your wrist position on the neck and get your thumb behind it when playing lead because the neck is so wide. I'm a huge Vai fan and have read his praises of the Universe for years. Now that I was able to work out an affordable deal and get one I am totally a believer. (I sold a cheap SG special for $550 and a Korean Ibanez JS100 for $450 to get this Universe and I don't miss them in the least).

    As usual, there is a great woman behind every idiot.
