Re: Help with Ibanez RGD73210Z matte finish!
I don't think you can do anything about it. The friction from your hand is essentially polishing the matte finish so that it smooths out the imperfections and makes it glossier. Aside from repainting the guitar I don't think there's anything you can do to fix it or keep it from happening. Maybe I'm wrong and someone else might correct me. Suede black and suede red I think have the same problems.
Like powder cosmo, Ibanez is good at making cool finishes that look "metal" in the store, but don't stand up well to continued real-world use. They should maybe paint the RGD7321 flat black like the RG7321 and call it a day.
