dna ?

after looking for the cause of my trem vibration(see other thread in tech section)
i notice that while i was tapping all over the body in search of the cause i found that its solid as hell except right over where the input jack is,if i tap there it sounds as if the paint is not stuck to the body?! so i opened the jack cover and i see it like *mabe a 1/4 inch of wood there! that sucks man *imho.
could the paint be lifting in that area?you cant see with the eye but i hear somthing *wierd

Is it possible that the "Basswood" laminate that is on the VWH's Alder body is separating from the body? *Does the paint seem to be bubbled or anything?

I really don't know how to answer your question, I am just grasping at straws.

hey im sorry man get lost in the threads at times.
no bubbles but i think its normal, its just a diff sound there if you tap with fingernail lol cause its so thin. i got scared but ive checked two 7 vwh and my rg and other rg plus friends jems all do the same.! but i donot think they need to take out this much wood! you could fit 2 *jacks in there man! *it pretty stupid inmho for sure!

Do you hear it too?

I'll bet your input jack nut is loose and you are hearing the washer rattle...Pull the cover and check it out.

The input jacks have a rubber o-ring at the base that keeps them pretty snug, so you may not notice the jack itself being loose. But I'll bet the nut is inside the cavity.
