Re: Got any advice on how to not get pitting on an Edge
I think it depends on the color. I have two chrome and though I wipe them down every time I finish, they have not pitted at all. On the other hand, Cosmo Chrome seems to be the worst. I have two of those and one came pre-pitted so I can't judge that one. The 2nd was mint and I have religiously wiped it every time I finish, and though it still looks good, a few pits have started.
The poly/enamel coating is a good idea. Lately I have been putting a piece of clear shipping tape across the bridge when I play (mostly to protect the saddles) because I sweat profusely.
