UV777BK Pup Question

I decoded my brand new baby's serial number as a 2001 Y. So I don't hafta go looking at old catalogues, is it safe to say I have DiMarzio Blazes? Also, the tech that I had set it up for me was a tech that has worked for Little Stevie Vai!!! How cool is that? Anyhoo, he said the fingerboard was way dry from hanging in the store since '01. He oiled it up and it plays great! What else should I be concerned about it being in the store so long?

Probably nothing else. Do you happen to know WHAT he oiled it up with? That's a question going round this forum right now (dry neck thread)...and since he used to be "Little Stevie Vai's" tech;)

:lol: Only because under your under name it shows your join date - July 2005 and you've posted only 25 times;)
I just talked to Randy, the Tech, he told me he only uses Dr. Duck's Axe Wax. Would someone be a kind soul and maybe post that to the OTHER dry neck post? Thanx
I thought this thread was based on the UV7BK but it's based on the UV777BK. :lol:

Welcome to the forum. ;)
Thanks, I've been using them interchangeably. I guess I need to go review the models......
I reviewed the pics, you are right, this is all about the 777! I think I changed the thread. Now, anyone know if I'm right about the Blazes? are all 777's Blazes?
Blazes. ;) My PWH has them too and it's a '91.
All (stock) UV's are blazes - what happens after they've been bought is anyone's guess. ;)
Thanks to all, if they be blazes, I like 'em!!!! do any of you have a favorite 5 way switch setting? Mine, so far, is second from the top!
