In the final installment of "guitars I traded the Road King for", I picked this up on the way back from getting the Mark III. In a rather convoluted deal, 7DT's was buying this from Mr S, but hadn't actually received it when we made the deal for the Road King. Hence me swinging past the studio Ryan was recording at to pick it up. Sadly timing didn't work out and Ryan was making an emergency trip for drum skins when I arrived, but his bassist kindly handed it over.
No serial number, but very, very clean for a guitar at least 20 years old
The trem looks virtually new
Backplate missing off the trem cavity, but I'll replace that down the line
I had to clean the back of the neck as it was filthy, but it's now clean as can be. Very, very smooth as it's been sanded down in the past
This has reminded me how awesome block heel Universes are, so I'm looking forward to taking it to rehearsal tomorrow. Universe + Mark III is a good combo
