question for RG1570 owners

Hi, I'm new to the site, I signed up because I'm about to buy my first ibanez.

I have ONE question.

I'm getting an RG1570. I have 2 choices.
Suede black, or mirage blue.

I like the suede black a little better, but I'm concerned the suede finish will scratch easier.

has anyone any experience with either finishes? Also, can i wax the suede finish?

thanks in advance guys

Suede black is a matte finish and in my experience, much harder to keep clean. Finger prints etc. It does not have a clear coat.

not for black

in addition to the maintenance factor, its boring as hell

Re: question for RG1570 owners

The clear coated finishes are much more durable, plus the mirage blue is quite nice and the suede black is dull as dishwater.

Rock on!
