Great guitar for an amazing price

Janne O., 17.04.2015
Right out of the box the guitar felt amazing. The action was set low, the fret job was very smooth, the tremolo unit was set up to perfection, the neck was just right. Only thing I ended up having to adjust was the intonation. That was off by a little bit. Compared to what I remembered my old RG 7620 sounding like (I sold it about a year before buying this one) I initially thought the pickups sounded a bit dull. I guess my taste just had changed to favour more mid range rich tone. These definitely sound a little scooped in the mids. For a while I contemplated changing the pickups but over the next months I got grew more fond of them and I'm not thinking about replacing them any more. All in all the guitar is amazing value considering the price. No build quality issues at all. There is nothing about the guitar that strikes me as "cheap" or lesser than the Japanese made ones. The case and the tools are really nice bonus too.

Wow!

Mister Moose, 30.06.2013
Very impressive instrument! Originally, I had expected to find a pure metal ax - and indeed, the sun actually sets in front of a beautifully torn amp or a powerful fuzz. Top notch!
That this (very stylish) guitar but also clean makes a fantastic figure, I would not have expected so. All pickup settings are fully usable and convince with really good sounds. Okay, a certain amount of cold is always there, which makes the UV70P not necessarily suitable for jazz and kindred; But all other styles will bring you the best. Full score so.
For those who have not had any experience with 7-string guitars (this is my first 7string), let's say it takes a bit of getting used to. It is amazing how often you look at the deepest string, especially with simpler chords. But you get the handle after a short time. And it's just fun to play in the bass area.
The string position is marginal low; With my instrument rummage 5. and 6 strings in the lowest frets already with a somewhat harder attack. (Can of course be corrected with a few handgrips). Otherwise the playability is a dream.
The vibrato system actually works largely without any detuning. With all my other guitars, I have put the vibrato unit down - but here I enjoy the work with the Wimmerhaken. The result of this is, of course, a much greater effort when changing the string - but I would like to buy it here.

Conclusion: really good guitar for almost all styles from clean to ultra. It's clear why Steve Vai gave his name for it. Jazzer and Blueser look better elsewhere. ;)
