Hey guys,

I'm looking into getting a 7 string and I have narrowed it down to those two guitars. And I was wondering is the universe worth like an extra £1000? Or is it just over priced and I should get the RG? So advice etc would nice thank you

for hardware comparison the uv is the better guitar, in terms of sound i`d take dimarzios over the stock pups

if i had to choose then it would be the uv, primarily `cos i`ve got a Jem and if i were to make a similar purchase for a 7 then i`d go for the uv.

the 1527 is not a bad guitar just weaker in the comparisson

I'm pretty sure the hardware is exactly the same in the guitars. I think the main differences are aesthetics. The only difference that affects playability is the neck differences. Neither are better, just one was made personally for Steve. The UV does come with better pickups. But never judge a guitar by it's stock pickups because they can easily be swapped and every pickup can sound bad to someone.
