    I don't know either, but I'm going to be very careful with my guitars from now on...

    "A lumbar puncture (or LP, and colloquially known as a spinal tap) is a diagnostic and at times therapeutic procedure that is performed to collect a sample of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) for biochemical, microbiological, and cytological analysis, or very rarely as a treatment ("therapeutic lumbar puncture") to relieve increased intracranial pressure."

    Seriously though Axe, just sounds like some bad luck. If you love the guitar, don't let a little "character" ruin it for you.

    Agreed!!!! I used to try to keep my PRSi as mint as possible and still take very good care of them. However, I have become comfortable with the fact that they won't stay perfect forever. It's always heartbreaking to see it happen for the first time, but scratches and dings are going to happen. I actually just put a pretty gnarly scuff on my Custom 22 at practice on Sunday. I was pissed at first, but all in all, that guitar can still scream and still plays all the same.

    The SE finish is MUCH thicker, takes the little hits alot better. The V2 as I have observed, and others before have commented, seems quite easy to chip and ding. I had a 2008 Mira that got scratched when you looked at it wrong. But thicker finish = more subtraction = bad for sound. So there's a price to be paid, but I am sure that you know that already.

    Noone is more paranoid about scratching their guitars than I am...trust me...but you will miss her. You can tell your kids the stories someday. Or ship her to me so I can see the chip firsthand

    Good luck whatever you decide.

    I had sworn off black guitars before I bought mine. They show every little dent and ding and chip and crack and scratch and fingerprint. I had this Gretsch that was solid black, so beautiful but I found I wouldn't play it. Didn't want to have to wipe it down after each time.

    But my black guitar was the best playing and sounding of the bunch, and I tried dozens of guitars. So, I bought it, and I swore that I'd never clean it, and every bump and bruise and fingerprint was a sign of the solid use I intended to put into it. It was liberating, and I don't even remember half of the cosmetic crap it now shows. Whatever, each one is a love story. Coming up on 7 years in this lust affair. I actively seek out black guitars now.

    If this is a new (different) spot, then it is unlikely that PTC overlooked it. I'm still trying to figure out the spinal tap comment.

    I was wondering the same thing, but at least he didn't yell at me.

    What did you guys do to him?

    Maybe he bumped the guitar against the caps lock key...

    Seriously, axe, I totally get the not wanting to have any flaw on the guitar (and believe me, when I bang one, I do not follow this advice for quite a while), but if the guitar sounds that good, don't sweat some dings and scratches. It's not a flaw - it's your story written on the guitar.

    Try to learn the life lesson that "cursed" guitar is attempting to teach you... I wouldn't think about letting go of such a unique guitar as that one is, even if it is somewhat blue... you'll never find another.
