The Ibanez UV77RE is a Universe series guitar model and seven-string signature model of guitarist Steve Vai, introduced in 2010. It is a reissue of the 1990 UV77 in honor of its twentieth anniversary. Included with the guitar is an Ibanez flight case, special printed high quality 'Passion And Warfare' poster and a special certification. Only 100 models were produced. The guitars carry a blank plate at the base of the neck joint. The serial number is on the rosewood neck below the 24th fret. The guitars also come in a heavy duty tribute Ibanez case with twist locking rather than latches.
