You ever see people who have the paint on their guitar worn down to bare wood. Is this even possible or do they just fake it and want us to think they have just practiced so much? anyone have an istrument that they actually truthfully did this too. I am curios too know. I have had some instrument for years and this has never happened. Of course some wear on the fret board and a beaten up body -but never sanding it down with my flesh to bear wood.
