My v7 uses a 60 or 62. You'll be fine.
Thank you, I appreciate that! The slot for that one isn't bigger because it's a 7 string?
On the nut, I'd assume so.
I was just referring to the hardware - i'll give it a look over when I change strings to investigate.
Okay! Let me know what you find!

I didn't feel like reading through all the posts to see if anyone mentioned the pickups. I like the Vader very much... comfortable and compact... I also like the body shape. What I did not like were the Lithium pickups. I found they were a bit dark or muddy... they didn't have life in them like other guitars I've used and have. Having said that, I've also been using various pedals, although I do have an Axe Fx II. Just recently I got a Carl Martin Buff DeLuxe (I'll post a review on it soon)... a buffer... and holy smokes it completely brightens and picks up the pickups... at least allows them to come through far better than before. And so, the issue was not the pickups... just all my true-bypass pedals, lol.

That's probably the first time I've ever heard the lithiums called too dark and muddy. The complaint is pretty much universally (with those that have an issue with them) that they're too bright.
