Question about finish
Sanding becomes very difficult around the cutaways let me tell you, you'll be spending a lot of time on it. However, it is definitely worth it. I haven't done this to my 7620, but I've done to a Strat that I owned where the body was in fairly rough shape. To say the least it was a drastic improvement!
I also coincidentally used an Antique walnut finish & oil on the Strat, and it was the perfect color I was looking for. Comparing the two guitars I think it would nicely suite the 7620.
Good luck! (Buy a good sander and partical mask for harmful dusts)
