The UV7P is a seven string Universe series solid body electric guitar introduced by Ibanez in 1990. It is a signature model of American guitarist Steve Vai. It was made in Japan by FujiGen.
The UV7P features an American basswood body bolted to a maple neck with a 24-fret rosewood fingerboard with pearl and abalone disappearing pyramid position markers. Components include white DiMarzio Blaze II pickups mounted in a white pearloid pickguard with a pair of humbuckers flanking a single-coil, a double locking tremolo tremolo bridge, Gotoh tuning machines and white top hat knobs.
The initial UV7P models have an Edge 7 tremolo; these 1990 Universe models are the only guitars on which this tremolo has been offered. From 1991 that was replaced with the new Lo Pro Edge 7.
