Anyone know how they do it, so the color don't get yellow with age?

According to Ibanez it's not supposed to go yellow with age due to the paint process. There is a snippet on the bottom of one of the pages on Jemsite with the quote from Ibanez...can't remember where exactly though.

True, but this was a prototype so it's possible it didn't get the perfected UV protectant coatings. Plus, if you gigged out with your VWH has much as Vai does/did, I'm sure it WOULD start to yellow after, oh, say 300 or so days in direct sunlight. He's had that thing for something like 10 years now.

Guitar Age like a Fine Wine.

I don't know about you, but you shouldn't worry about the finish aging, I think that it would be cool to have the finsh yellow. I take care of my guitars, but they still manage to age and such which is probably why I like them. I know on my JEM7DBK the tremelo is perfectly set (It takes a lot of work tog etit out of tune-other than when you restring it) and it feels so smooth. The neck has a weird caoting in it, and it keeps getting slicker-something that I like.
Just to let you know that you shouldn't worry about anything, if I was to buy a used 7v it wouldn't matter to me what color the finish was as long as the guitar itself was kept in good shape.
