Does anyone else LIKE the way Cosmo wears?

I know it's a knock against Cosmo but I have to say I dig it. Worn Cosmo means you play the hell of of your guitar, and that's what it's all about.

yeah most people don't. It's my goal to wear it all off my 470. If I do, I'll know both of us have given our all.

Love cosmo. Don't like the wear or the pitting.

I haven't either... played an RG520 with cosmo for 10 years with no problems at all.

I sold it a couple of years ago but the finish on the bridge and tuners still looked almost new.

The trick?

Just wipe the guitar down after you play it.

It's the acids in your sweat and skin oil that cause the most wear/pitting and if you keep it clean these acids won't have a chance to do much damage.

Yep, I've got a '00 RG520, and the cosmo might have worn a bit from the original owner, but I think it looks great. I like the finish in any state, as long as it performs like new.

On regular cosmo; no.
Powder cosmo, however, is the biggest joke ever. It looks good in the beginning but it wears off in MONTHS! Cheap, cheap, cheap! Sadly it's on my RG570 - one of my favorite players.
