I say go for it.
wow now that's some road wear!!
Well loved guitar there.....
Really like this.
I have a live DVD of Cross Canadian Ragweed. Cody’s wearing some heavy metal (no pun intended) bracelets. Pretty sure that’s where a lot of the top wear comes from.
One day when I hung up the phone by gravitating it towards a wall, the battery wanted to say hello to my new CE24 (had it 3 months when this happened):
I tend to rest my finger tips on the body when not powdering picks on the lower strings, so this is where the satin finish started getting glossy:
Clear coat/pick scratches on my SE Singlecut:
A few traces of palm muting:
Sorry, not really much "tear and wear" so far. I'm working on it. xD
She’s a 1990, but she looked hardly played when I bought her 2 1/2 years ago. Kinda cool to think I did most of this myself! She polishes up well, just dirtier than usual at the moment.
I stink, but I play up the neck anyway...
But yeah, cowboy chords have been played...
And the A box...
Extended A box too...
The one time I played it with my ring on, lol
Here’s both attire and wear! Mr. Clean started life as a test platform for nearly every PRS pickup on the planet, and then some, so in the process of swapping pups, it acquired a bit of “patina”. The trem cover was pulled today to adjust the claw tension and it was a linty mess! Probably glued in from playing every smokey bar in Indiana since the day I got her. This V12 finish still looks smokin’ good, so there’s no need for close-ups...
Is taking a ring off something people normally do?
It’s probably just me. My wife insisted on my having a big, clunky, heavy-feeling wedding band, so I usually only wear it when we go out.
If you look really closely, there’s a fingerprint smudge on the bass pickup.
That top though! You oughta name it Dolly!
Someone wore all that stain off the middle of those water ripples.
This! Totally, this!
Mine hasn't seen it's PRS case in 14 yrs. Oh, I have it, but it just never resides in it. After all that time of daily UV, constant temp and humidity and playing, It shows no fading at all. Compared to photos of the day I bought it, it appears identical color wise.
This was the point when I opened this thread one year ago. If it looks new forever, it's cool because PRS developed a finish that last long and keeps your guitar away from aging. But it's also not cool because my guitar doesn't age and I do. I want my guitars to age with me, to tell "my story".
