ok so im looking at getting the ec-1000 in vintage black and everyone says its all amazing and fine but i want to know is if the finish scratches easily because of it being a flat/satin finish not gloss?

cheers

So what if it scratches? It gives it character. I wouldn't even care if the finish would scratch man. That's pretty much throwing out a guitar just because of cosmetics.


It's still going to sound the same if it has a couple of dings.

Do you mean the LTD EC-1000 VB? Thats the only satin one they make.


I would think so. I think the VB stands for Vintage Black and he mentioned he was looking at the Vintage Black EC-1000.

Bashing the finish isn't going to mean that the guitar won't last.

it will scratch just like any guitar, also over time the oil from your hands will rub off the satin and create a shiny gloss on the guitar

yer that cool over time is good, i play a Ltd mh1000nt as well and that thing has taken a beating as it was my main guitar on tour. i decided that i might as well get another Ltd cause they are amazing.

I rather like the Vintage black, but I feel the dark cream/gold binding is a bit too garish for me.
Still, beat it to hell and back, it'll still be a good guitar.
