the spots on the gold are normal wear. *To slow down the wear, make sure you wipe down the trem and the guitar with a cloth after you play everytime. *Also, keep the guitar in it's case. *In terms of making the fret board look better, there are a number of different approaches. *I hear a lot of folks recommending Linseed oil.

Is the pickup really low? Raising will increase the volume, but may get in the way of your picking. Could also be a loose connection somewhere, but then you probly wouldn't be getting anything out of it.

To clean the fretboard, get yourself some bore oil ( US$2.00) and let it soak into the rosewood then rub it off with some cotton swabs or clean cloth rags. I do this once a month and my 7V's are still as clean as they day it was made (maybe cleaner).

I just clean all my fretboards with a slightly damp rag and then oil them up once in a while. *They all still look brand new and feel great!!!
