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.

Fan de Vai, j'ai acheté cette guitare en connaissance de cause, et quelle claque... C'est tout simplement la meilleure 7 cordes qu'il m'ait été donné de jouer et pourtant du matos, j'en brasse... Fabrication exemplaire n'est déplaise aux rageux qui ne voient que par le tout USA, c'est un vrai, un pur coup de cœur que je ne regrette pas l'ombre d'une seconde. J'ai beau cherche je ne lui trouve pas de défaut, même l'étui semi rigide est classe et léger, et la série Premium a un bel avenir devant elle si la qualité reste la même. Fantastique ! :)

Wow!
Mister Moose, 30.06.2013
Sehr beeindruckendes Instrument! Ursprünglich hatte ich erwartet, eine reine Metal-Axt vorzufinden – und tatsächlich geht vor einem schön zerrenden Amp oder mit einem kräftigen Fuzz auch wirklich die Sonne auf. Erste Sahne!
Dass diese (überaus stylische) Gitarre aber auch clean eine phantastische Figur macht, hätte ich so nicht erwartet. Sämtliche Pickup-Einstellungen sind uneingeschränkt nutzbar und überzeugen mit wirklich guten Sounds. Okay, eine gewisse Kälte ist immer dabei, was die UV70P nicht unbedingt für Jazz und Artverwandtes tauglich macht; sämtliche anderen Stile bringt sie aber bestens rüber. Volle Punktzahl also.
Denjenigen, die bislang noch keine Erfahrungen mit 7saitigen Gitarren gemacht haben (dies ist meine erste 7string), sei gesagt: ein wenig Eingewöhnungszeit braucht's schon. Schon erstaunlich, wie oft man sich optisch an der tiefsten Saite orientiert, vor allem bei einfacheren Akkorden. Das bekommt man aber nach kurzer Übezeit in den Griff. Und es macht einfach Spaß, auch mal im Bass-Bereich zu wildern.
Die Saitenlage ist grenzwertig niedrig eingestellt; bei meinem Instrument schnarren 5. und 6 Saite in den untersten Bünden schon bei etwas härterem Anschlag. (Lässt sich natürlich mit ein paar Handgriffen korrigieren). Ansonsten ist die Bespielbarkeit ein Traum.
Das Vibrato-System arbeitet tatsächlich weitestgehend verstimmungsfrei. Bei all meinen anderen Gitarren habe ich die Vibrato-Einheit stillgelegt – hier aber genieße ich die Arbeit mit dem Wimmerhaken. Die Folge davon ist allerdings natürlich ein deutlich größerer Aufwand beim Saitenwechseln – aber das nehme ich hier gerne in Kauf.

Fazit: richtig gute Gitarre für fast alle Stilrichtungen von clean bis ultra. Schon klar, weshalb Steve Vai seinen Namen dafür hergibt. Jazzer und Blueser schauen sich aber besser woanders um. ;)

Un pedazo de guitarra
David Jaime, 16.06.2014
Estoy muy contento con la compra. La guitarra venía sin ajustar bien, con la acción muy alta, pero una vez arreglado esto, se toca muy fácil y tiene un sonido brutal. Como único aspecto negativo, en la funda viene un muelle de repuesto, pero es de menos grosor y resistencia que los muelles que ya están instalados (supongo que es para una guitarra de 6 cuerdas)
