Before line6 was called line6... they used to do r&d for other companies like alesis + others. and when those customers came to visit the offices of line6 (before it was called line6) and the receptionist needed to warn all the guys who were designing products for other companies (and for themselves... ) who were like 'in the back' the receptionist would announce over a tannoy 'tellephone call for 'fred smith' on line 6' the cunning part was that they only had 5 telephone lines, so it was the secret code for "hide your sh1t the feds are comin'" or "someone's coming, let's hide these PODs that we aren't going to release for another few years so they don't see them"

measure the nut on your 700 - and here is the info on graphtech sizes:

to fit, take out your 700 nut, and place the tusq next to it to work out how much to sand down.

place sandpaper on a flat surface and VERY carefully keeping it square, sand down to same height.

 

Edit:

measure your string gaps - this is more important than total nut width - I sanded down the ends of the nut also, taking off maybe 5-6mm off the total width (2-3mm each side)

 

My graphtech nuts are barely slotted - ie the strings sit "high in the saddle", so you need to take this into consideration working out the finished height of the nut.

You could order 2 nuts just in case you take it too far, but I just kept trying it out to check for height, and then sanded a little bit more, etc

 

At least this is what I did for my 600, and I guess translates to the 700 also, as long as the nut has a flat bottom - good luck.

I did this actually for my 600, and then for two strat clones which received the guts of the 600 and a 300 respectively - see link:
