1 Hipbone 3 months ago I’m curious about “well” played guitars and their worn finishes? I’ve been playing for 40 years and have never had a guitar develop any sort of wear patterns in the finish.Is this just a phenomenon of older/ different finishes? I’ve had my nitro finish Annie since 2008 and play the hell out of it. It has some nicks and slight scratches but no wear patterns. What’s the deal with necks where the finish starts to wear off?I do like the look of a well played guitar. Is relicing the only way a modern guitar will ever look like this? I understand how poly finishes will never look this way on their own, but I thought nitro would?
