I hate to break the myth, but JS2 PRM's (and prior to those, the JS10's) CAN be played without finish wearing off and peeling.
Yes, they are undoubtedly more fragile than a normal paint and clearcoat finish, and yes they will lose the 'unblemished' look, but as long as you take care and cover them with some sort of static cling vinyl over areas you arm and hands touch, you can play them - BUT YOU DO NEED TO BE MORE WARY THAN WITH OTHER FINISHES!!!!
I have previously gigged for about 4 years with a JS10 covered in the appropriate areas this way and never had a flake, peel, chip or scratch (only scratches appeared when cleaning it). I remove the cling every month or so to clean underneath and have had no problems with residue or peeling of finish underneath (JS10th or JS2PRM)
I now have a JS2PRM that I rehearse with every week, play every day and will be gigging soon. I also have static cling vinyl on this guitar and, so far, no problems with fade, peel, chip or spontaneous combustion. It sounds great too!
As I say, you will definitely lose the 'mint, unblemished' look, but with a bit of care and appropriate protection, these babies can be played.
However, if you've bought them as an investment, then probably best stick to looking at it and play something less likely to show wear!
Pictures of both Chromies intact after lots of playing (and the JS10 at a gig, with the static cling on it) can be seen at www.myspace.com/sukhryatt

Totally by the way, the JS2PRM will get its first public gig on January 26th in Kingston upon Thames if anyone feels like coming along. My band are playing to raise money for cancer research, so come see the shiny guitar not peel and feel good about helping raise dough for a worthwile cause.
