finish on RG8320 and Ax

[IMG]http://www.**************.com/guitar/ibanez/images/IBA-AXPrestigeBlkLarge.jpg[/IMG]

Hi
These two guitars have a kind of leathery finish. But someone said tht the finish exfoliates over time. Can you please tell me what this means. Thanks

Exfoliating is when you peel or scrape off scales/dead skin. If someone said that the finish exfoliates over time I'm guessing that means that the finish will wear off and sloooooowly peel away like dead skin.

Got to agree that a worn leather type finish has the potential to look killer !

I cant really imagine what that would look like tho...when i imagine it to have 'exfoliated' i imagine it to look black with pieces of wood showing.

I used to have an AX1220BBK with that finish. Didn't have any problems like the one you're describing.
The good thing about that finish is that black magic marker works like a charm on covering up little dings
