never had black fingers from touching it. Prints do show up on there even when I'm lightely handling the guitar..but I guess anything with a black finish will look dirty easily.

No flaking and no black fingers.

Very sturdy finish actually, despite having been broken in.

Had a 2002 Saber with the same finish - main guitar, played it hard and brought it all around. Even had a screwdriver slip over it... minimal scratching, compared to some regular finish.

I am getting a RG Prestige for $300 with this finish. I wonder how hard it would be to remove it..

Re: Ibanez Bikers Black Finish

Two guitars with this finish. Usually end up with some black under my little fingernail after playing them, so it does wear over time. The finish is duller where my nail has scratched away at it from normal playing. Doesn't look particularly bad though, still very cool looking guitars and all other areas show no signs of wear. Unless you're looking to keep one in collector condition, I wouldn't let it stop you.

Re: Ibanez Bikers Black Finish

I actually like the dull feel. I hate overtly glossy feeling guitars. That's why I was going to ttake the finish off. But after playing it, I am keeping it on. I have it for a player. I have owned mostly S series guitars. I have had a few RGs in my teens but they felt "huge" back then. Not so much now.

The 18mm-20mm Prestige wizard isn't as bad asI thought it would be. A bit wider too.
