My 52 AV was made in 2017, when I purchased it last year, it already had finish checking which I don't mind. Now, I'm noticing the start or fretboard wear. Part of the body is turning a darker yellow, where the forearm sits. It's only 4 years old! It's interesting to watch, but at this rate, it could be relicing too fast. I mean it'll look cool at it's peak, but I'm hoping the fretboard won't look like mud before too long. The body and the neck, who knows what the finish checking will look like. Do you have a Tele that relics too fast or is this normal? Here in Australia, all we do is sweat, there's also extreme temperature changes.
