Seven Strings and Ready to Shred!
Steve Vai expanded what the guitar could do, charting new musical territory with six strings and new universes with seven. Ibanez's UV70P Universe Premium is a tribute to Vai's work on seven strings, giving players a 7-string model ready to accompany them on their own sonic expeditions.
See Steve Vai talk about the Ibanez UV70P Universe:
Adapting to a 7-string guitar can be challenging for some, but Ibanez has designed the UV70P to ease that transition. Constructed of American basswood, the guitar is crafted in a slightly larger version of the familiar Ibanez JEM shape. Bolted to the body is another Ibanez staple: the Wizard 7 neck. The UV70P's 5-piece maple/walnut neck has a slim profile, and the rosewood fretboard is fitted with a Premium fret edge treatment so you can make the upper registers your shredding playground. KTS titanium rods reinforce the neck and add tuning stability.
DiMarzio Blaze Pickups are Ready to Rumble
Pickup choice is critical to 7-string guitarists, as the pickups have to be able to handle not only the guitar's extended range, but the copious amounts of gain many players use. DiMarzio, a long-time partner with Steve Vai, developed their Blaze humbucking pickups for just this task. The bridge and neck-position pickups naturally scoop mids, while boosting treble and bass response. This helps to get the most out of the low strings, while avoiding "muddying up" the sound. A Blaze single-coil pickup in the middle position opens up new tonal possibilities, both on its own and when blended with the humbuckers.
Edge Bridge Keeps it all Together
The UV70P's Edge Zero II-7 bridge and locking nut bring dive-bombs to the 7-string crowd, enabling you to create truly earth-shaking rumbles. The recessed tremolo cavity means you can also pull up on the bar for screeching, otherworldly pinch harmonics.
