Ibanez UV77-PSN Limited Run Universe Passion Swirl Only 77 Made


    Here is a mint condition collector owned very special PSN. Only 77 made of each color to celebrate 25th anniversary of the Passion and Warfare album. There are 3 colors. This is the ''Passion''. The guitar is in mint condition and comes with goodies and original case, but sadly the certificate has been lost.

    The Universe, as Steve dubbed it, was showcased prominently on Passion & Warfare, and opened the door for guitarists of every musical background to expand their artistic horizons. Initially adopted by like minded guitar virtuosos, Steve’s vision of a new musical landscape took a turn that perhaps even he hadn’t anticipated when, in the hands of Korn and other purveyors of 90’s new metal, the 7-string became mandatory equipment for anyone engaging in the genre.

    Since that time, Steve, along with countless other 7-string enthusiasts have continued to incorporate the Universe into a myriad of musical settings that have both inspired and challenged the world.

    In celebration of the 25th anniversary of Passion & Warfare, Steve Vai and Ibanez are proud to offer three very special limited edition guitars.

    Using the same colorful swirled patterning associated with the original Universe, they here present “Passion” & “Warfare.” These handcrafted guitars draw on the color schemes present in the original album artwork, depicting the ravages of a war-torn hell juxtaposed against a nirvana-like state of passion for life and for love.

    The third in this series of celebratory editions looks to the traditional role silver plays in observance of a 25th anniversary, marrying it with a design reminiscent of Steve’s custom 7-string, used when touring with Whitesnake, immediately following the release of Passion & Warfare.

    77 pieces of each of these three editions have been made available to the public for purchase.
