Making Brightness of JEM7VWH's Inlay

i just got used JEM7VWH yesterday. and i have various questions about it..anyone who know "how to" here..please help me..
1) How can I making brightness of abalone inlay at scallope area ? it's getting dark..??? which solvent or whatever can clean that ??
2) EVO pickup looks more "cream" than "white", how can i do good cleaning of it and return their "white" back ?

I know this is very stupid questions, but do not blame me...just because i love my guitar in my collection..

The scallops aren't dirty they're burnt. from when they were cut. I have no idea if you can sand through the burnt layer or not, maybe Jeremy [LGM] has experimented.

There are many different shades of white on a VWH, they may be their regular color unless it's spent years in a very smokey house [mine for example] in which case a little spit on a rag will tell you
