hi everyone

im planning on getting the new for 2010 white mtm2 seen here http://www.dv247.com/assets/products/70850_l.jpg

my question (as the title suggests ) is will this guitar eventually turn yellow? i've seen this with a lot of old white guitars but i was curious if that is a thing of the past. i've also heard that ibanez use produced a white finish that wont age (but that may be bull).


i really want the guitar but would rather have it hanging on my wall with my black one than have to leave it in a case for fear of it turning yellow

can anybody reassure me or is it something i'm just going to have to deal with

cheers

I sure hope it does, a white guitar turning yellow shows character and age. But, if you don't like it, that's your opinion of course.

However, I don't know about Ibanez paint not aging... I've seen a '91 PGM for sale that's definitely turned cream.

@ OP: go for it dude, it wouldn't be turning any colors any time soon.

generally all things fade/ get dirty, but a hard coat and poly finish wont really (like on my epiphone...sadly). a laquer or nitro finish or some sort will age FAR faster, especially with live use with spills, smoke stains, sweat, etc etc.

coolest white guitar ive ever seen is Jerry Cantrell's signature G and L rampage on guitar worlds interview lesson of man in the box and would.

the guitar has sick decals on it, and it was a dirty grayish yellow color from use. but it ws 100% natural. you can tell it was his personal stage guitar. looked SICK.

wow hostility, I dont know what i did to piss you off.

i would give a rats ass because i want a white guitar. if i wanted a yellow guitar i would get a yellow guitar...

also i dont see how a white guitar turning yellow is a "scar" personally. if my guitar had a big dent in it which was caused by me accidently twatting the bass player, that wouldnt bother me because that dent/nick/crack has a story behind it. theres nothing interesting about an off colour guitar for me personally.

also dude, just so you know, i'm twenty one. which is two years older than you

It was intentional. In speech however, I do unfortunately talk like that. In the area of Long Island that I am from everyone uses the word "like" about eight times per sentence. I haven't ever been able to shake that affectation. As for my education, I have a degree in graphic design from Northeastern University in Boston. That is to say, none .

Also, Ibanez uses polyester-clear urethane based paint.

I've been wondering the same about my white eclipse what with how different paints would age differently. I think it would take along time to color and would depend on how well you took care of it and so on... I can see why you want it to stay white though, I have a massive thing for white guitars. I do see the appeal in a aged yellow-ish look though and I myself wouldn't really mind too much if one day my eclipse did start to yellow.

I also happen to say "like" alot in speech and in writing, text posts so on... hey if it's not formal then why the hell not write as if you were talking to someone but it's also inherit of where I live and to be honest I don't mind it and can't see why or how the way you speak (to a certain degree) should be a judgment of your intelligence. That's just pure ignorance... you tard.

It will be a long time before it changes (if it will). A friend of mine has an Ibanez JEM from the early 90s. It still looks like he just bought it. (But he is obsessive about keeping it clean and shiny, so I don't know whether it's down to that or not). And when I say 'it looks like he just bought it', this doesn't include the neck and fretboard, they're both worn from years of use.

If you take little care of it, CONSTANTLY have it exposed (i.e. leaving it out of the case while on vacations or whatnot) then yes, it will probably turn a little bit yellow over about 10 years. But not much. Just keep the guitar in a nice climate, polish it every now and then, and keep it in your case when you're away for a while, and you'll be golden

A thick poly finish like that Ibanez has will take a long time to discolour - certainly more than ten years, could be as much as twenty.

Don't leave it out in the sun, and it'll be fine. It should come with a case; if not, get one, problem solved.

It is my opinion that if it does indeed turn cream/yellow, by the time it does, your tastes will have changed so much that you'll either appreciate this declaration of guitar mileage or have gotten rid of it.

That said my Strat is from the 90s and is long yellowed... but it's a good, mellow shade.

Btw chances are that it WILL turn cream after MANY years, but by then i doubt you will mind, it will stay snow white for many years, and taking good care of the finish will preserve its youthfulness
Eh.

but again do you care? i mean like wear on anything. you love your guitar and teh wear is from using it. the gold finish is wearing off my bridge pickup. i look at it and am like "....uhhh. well ok." cause i did that. its my mark on my guitar. what am i going to do? sell it? nope.

Please keep the 'faggy' part to yourself.

Anyways, no, I don't think it will. My bass teacher has an ancient Jazz bass that was originally white, but it has since turned yellow, and the finish has cracked. But it was true nitrocellulose, not like this gloss crap that companies put over their guitars nowadays. The point of nitrocellulose is for it to break up and breath later on in the guitar's life......

Anyways, I don't think it will happen. It's possible, but I highly doubt it. If it does, just sell it or get it re-finished.
