I just got my 7VWH yesterday for the price of $1400. Pretty good price, but it was a 98 model with a small chip on the back that was patched up a bit (hack job of it though.) Well, I just had a couple questions about it.
On the scalloped frets, the abalone is pretty dull...is this just a result of the scallops or is it dirty? It doesn't really appear to be dirty.
How would I replace a string on this thing? I get the part about unlocking the nut, and the string saddles, but how will I know how far to cut the ball end off? Or will it really matter?
