    Had my Broadcaster since June (think it was June anyway), played it loads but only at home, it’s been kept out of the case. We had a hot summer and a cold snap this last week, I’ve noticed some very fine cracks in the finish - you have to really look for them and get the light just right.
    Also, where my arm rests on the top is going slightly dull and it looks like the lacquer is starting to sink into the wood too.
    Wasn’t expecting to see this so early on but I like it, the guitar is taking on some character and I didn’t need to go custom shop to get it.

    This is all good news as I just bought my Broadcaster 2 weeks ago. I honestly haven’t put it down for very long.

    A little drop fill and some sanding and polish and you won't even see that chip.

    Hmm. That case looks like it is in mint condition. Is that a custom shop logo reflecting in the pickguard? Btw, I love it!

    Custom reiic! I can't stand (I might piss some people off here) FAKE relic jobs. Let your hands do the job naturally. You'll feel more pleasure from it. It's a feel thing! Every guitar has it's scars. They are a badge of honor. Otherwise keep it in a case and just look at it. Keep on pickin!!
