RGT220ANTF finsih

I've owned an RGT220ANTF from new (around 8 years) and I've noticed recently that the finish is wearing off in places, especially on the neck and under the pickups. I wouldn't mind, but I can actually feel the grain of the wood on the back of the neck, particularly in the dark (rosewood?) sections of the 5 piece neck. Anyone else had a similar experience, and if so, what did they do to rectify it?

Re: RGT220ANTF finsih

Any finish will eventually wear off, grime and sweat from your fingers break down the lacquer and wear it off. How long it lasts depends on what kind of finish it is and how often you play on that guitar.

It sounds like the finish is worn down pretty good, especially if your starting to feel bare wood. Sounds like it may need a refinishing. You'll have to strip off the old finish and spray fresh coats.
