JEM77BRMR "Bad Horsie" durability
Well I played one this weekend at my local shop. They had just gotten it in, and I played it for a couple of hours. The finish seemed really durable. As I was playing it, a lot of people came by and wanted to take a look, and it passed through a lot of hands and only showed fingerprints. I did not try to abuse it, but I did test the finish by rubbing heavily with my fingernail and guitar pick, and no scratches showed up. Once I was done playing it, the sales person cleaned off the fingerprints it with his t-shirt, and it did not show any signs of those fine rub scratches that you see on highly polished guitars.
