UV70P BK

The UV70P is a seven-string Universe series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 2013. It is a signature model of American guitarist Steve Vai. It is produced in Indonesia as part of the Premium line.

The UV70P sports a black finish with green accents (fret inlays, pickups, knobs, etc). It has an American basswood body bolted to a titanium reinforced maple and walnut neck with a 24-fret rosewood fingerboard with green dot position markers. Components include DiMarzio Blaze pickups with a pair of humbuckers flanking a single-coil, an Edge Zero II-7 double locking tremolo bridge and a clear pickguard.

For 2018 the rosewood fretboard was replaced with panga panga.

The UV71P, which was introduced in 2015, is essentially the same guitar aside from the finish (color) and the fretboard inlays.
