Well I remember hearing some dissent in a thread once, but this is also just the first thing that comes to mind when I think about it. My concern would be the many crevices on the guitar's surface. Yes, it's sealed tightly, but there are crevices (weird word..) regardless. Heres from Rich's site:
(Goddamn thats gorgeous) Anyhow, given that the guitar is gonna be played, it'll be subject to the usual, you know, stuff, the skin, hair, dirt, lent from rags, etc that usually collect in and on the trem, the pups, and the board (try as we might to prevent it). Simply put, for Mr.Puzzletop, there seems to be all the more places for this stuff to go, and get into. Yeah, their small, but their threre. I guess it comes down to how anal/OCD you are in regards to your axe
, I can totally see myself, every week, gettin down on that thing with some toothpicks and some compressed air, lol. It's not a huge problem, its just factors in when determining how much maintenance you want to put into a guitar. Me personally, hell I love the thing regardless, I'd clean it everyday if I could afford it
. But like I said, its just a matter of preference. Simple as that.
IMO toneboy, get that sweet axe, and send me some pics!!!\00/
