I don't wear guitars - I see guitars with the paint worn down to the wood: I've never done that. I'm not complaining, mind, but those of you who have worn it down - how? My yamaha (bought approximately 1989) has all its original paint except for a couple of chips. My solidbody mando (played most days, gigs fairly regularly), has no lacquer off it. My telecaster has no marks except some tiny divots. What am I doing right? or Wrong? just curious.
