White objects often go yellowish when handled alot.

I'm thinking of getting a SW LTD EC-1000, and I dont want the neck to tarnish and go all yellowy....

Do guitars often tarnish and go yellowy, or is this not a problem?

it takes YEARS to get that kinda wear. It will be fine, and most white guitars look amazing in my opinion.

Isn't Randy's LP sexy in that yellowish tint?



Could be the light, or the people smoking beneath him,

But what is supposed to be white shouldn't look yellow,

AND smoke causes the colour to become yellow, etc etc.

I think it might tint lightly, sometimes, just 'cause of aging.

But that takes a while. I want my Strat to.

well these days they use polyurethane for the finish. It's really durable and they dont wear and stuff. the clear coat will nver wear off unless you burn it or chip it.

dont worry.

It doesn't tarnish, it fades into a cream color. Nothing really stays pure white like the day you bought it. I'm not sure if the back of the neck is painted on that particular model you mentioned but it won't 'tarnish' it and like mentioned before it'll take a long while especially with todays finishes for it to fade, being in a smoke environment would speed it up I'd imagine. I got an 1986 Kramer that was white and turned into this cool creme color, I like it gives it this vintage look

White guitars age to a yellowish/cream color over time. Like Randy Rhoads' les paul custom. It could be a good thing for it to age like that. It just depends on what you like. It will tend to turn faster if your a smoker or if there is smoke around it often.

I'm wondering if some of the new pearl white or satin white finishes will yellow as much. Problem is, a seller will say what you want to hear and none are old enough for us to know.
