Ibanez Rg Prestige 2570 Vital Gold . re-coloring the body??

i just got a second hand 2570 , the guitar is in good shape , no cracks ,no loss of chunks of wood and the bridge , nuts , tuners are in pretty good shape , even the tone is so amazing that it made me feel never to sell it
now the only glitch this one had was the vital gold of the body has worn off in some places like the place where people anchor their hand , the palm muting area and in some of the edges , now is it possible to re color and make it look better than now ??

Re: Ibanez Rg Prestige 2570 Vital Gold . re-coloring off colored body??

I'm guessing no.

I'm no expert at guitar finishes but unless you refinish the entire guitar I don't think it's possible to get even a decent 'patch' job to conceal points of wear.

I have a 2004 RG2570 in 'Vital Silver' and I can see 'flat spots' on the textured finish where I rest my wrist and arm, and sometimes fingers below the strings on the face of the guitar... so far I've not worn through, but I expect I will eventually and personally I feel it's just part and parcel to a guitar that's being played and not a 'case queen' or something for display.
