Ibanez UV70P-BK Steve Vai Signature 7-String w/ Case in Black
Steve's Premium 7-string Hot Rod!
Built to the highest standards, Ibanez's UV70P Steve Vai Premium Signature solidbody electric guitar delivers total 7-string playability with a tone like no other instrument. For starters, you get the awesome playability of a 5-piece maple/walnut Premium Wizard 7 neck — easily one of Ibanez's fastest neck designs ever. A trio of DiMarzio Blaze pickups up the ante with epic bass, clearly articulated highs, and gently scooped mids, giving your UV70P a pre-EQ'ed hi-fi tone. Wrap it up with a performance-driven Edge Zero II-7 tremolo bridge, and you're in business!
DiMarzio Blaze pickups dish out hard-hitting rock tone
When DiMarzio's Blaze pickups came onto the scene in the dawning days of the 1990s, the sound of virtuoso rock changed forever. This Ibanez UV70P gives you that same groundbreaking sound in all its classic glory. The bass response is absolutely fantastic, giving your low B thunderous overtones. At the same time, the UV70P delivers sparklingly clear highs that cut nicely when distorted and shine when clean. And with a pronounced midrange scoop, this trio of DiMarzio Blaze pickups deliver the front-and-center hi-fi sound any lead guitarist can get into.
Your fingers will fly down this Premium Wizard 7 neck
One of Ibanez's fastest necks to date, the 5-piece maple/walnut Premium Wizard 7 neck on the UV70P is an absolute pleasure to play. This slim and super-comfortable neck lets you pull off lighting-fast runs and arpeggios with ease, but it still gives you the substance you need for fretting chords when you need to. And feel free to crank on this neck, because it's reinforced with KTS titanium rods for absolutely unstoppable stability. From the first time you put your hands on the UV70P's Premium Wizard 7 neck, you'll know that you have a guitar that was built with a real guitar legend in mind.
Edge Zero II-7 tremolo bridge gives you solid performance and stability
The UV70P's Edge Zero II-7 bridge with Zero Point System was designed by Ibanez to give you the fast tremolo response and snap you need to pull off sharp bends and flutters. The extreme stability of this knife-edge-style trem's stud lock function is also one of the many reasons it's a favorite among many of today's top shredders. If you're looking for a guitar that can stand up to long playing sessions without losing its tuning, then you're going to love the UV70P!
