    Hi,

    I have an Acme series III that the Duratex (I think that's what Andy uses) is coming off and looks really bad. Anybody else have this issue? Has anyone touched the covering up?

    Its about a year and a half old and I havn't treated it roughly just in and out of the SUV a few times.

    My Carvin LSX1503 has a Line-X type coating and still looks new despite 4 years of heavy gigging.

    Any suggestions before I call Andy Lewis?

    I've noticed the same thing on my two B1's. I really take care to keep them from bumping other things as I've had to touch up a few very small spots. I get the idea that it would happen even through covers. Just the Acme badge rubbing against a Duratex surface lightly and one time would make a nick to the base wood.

    Contact Andy. He was considering offering a touch up kit.
