But, not only did I practice on it extensively, I've been using it for teaching for almost seven years and I play on it ALL THE TIME. Even so, it's not even that bad.

Just play a little lighter....
Well, I use the same technique on both types of my guitars and the Prestige def show signs of wear quicker, which is the point I'm making. General strumming doesn't wear them, it's using lots of vibrato and enthusiastic use of the trem that speeds it up ! By 'wear' I don't mean it needs a fret dress every 6 months, it's just a visual thing, nothing major !
