    I try as hard as I can not to mark them, but this is what happens after 6 years of playing a 9K PS, sometimes 8 hours a day. No regrets at all. Many more to come.

    Doesn't bug me at all........unless it happens in the first 10 minutes of ownership, as with the &#%!@!!! dent I put on my latest R9 headstock almost immediately after pulling it out of its case for the first time!!!

    Stuff happens.... That said, whenever I'm playing I either untuck my shirt, or else move my belt buckle over to the side... I don't bother with my old (1965) Harmony/Silvertone, that has been banged around for 45+ years (and cost $89.95 when new)!

    1965 Silvertone "Silhouette" Model 1478 (Harmony-built)

    Bothers me with poly finishes (dings can be so sharp on the edges of the body that they can scratch your arms.) Not bothered about dings on nitro models.

    That's my starting point. 99.9% of the time, the result on me looks like the guy in the vid prior to your post.

    avoiding buckle scratches is easy, don't wear a belt.

    I love 24 frets: 4 X CU24s, 2 X Carvin DC127s, 1 X Schechter Omen 6

    My guitars are players so I don't mind. I gig them every month. I do try to keep them in as good a shape as possible, but as I said...
    Almost everything you need to know about life is on the Internet; everything else you can find in a Yes song.

    I did the 30 lb weight gain to protect from belt buckle rash. But now, I'm down 8 lbs, with a goal of losing 30 by the next experience.

    I figure I'll worry about buckle rash at that point...
