I have had my Eclipse for most of this summer, and The screws by the bridge pickup (black color) have had the paint worn off, like where I place my hand to palm mute. Is this normal??

The paint on those things usually wears off after a while. Fortunately, screws are cheap. If it bothers you, just get new ones.

It's not exactly like they make "boutique" screws a screws a screw.

Unless you buy tone screws but they're a little more expensive.

Yeah, it uses a special composite of metal and the increased weight of it increases sustain. It's nuts!

They also make chambered tone screws. The hollow section of the screw increases resonance. Kinda makes sense, if you had a solid screw in a hollow body guitar, it would sound weird.

Just be happy you don't have a Cosmo Black finish... DAMN YOU IBANEZ!!!

Mine started coming off my pickup rings within the first week of playing... But it's aight, it's straight chrome under it so it's kinda giving it a vintage worn look... and a nice wear (not damage, but legitimately playing wear) makes a guitar look better in my opinion. Not only does it give it character, but it shows how much you play it.

Yea its normal. My schecters have a stupid black chrome finish on everything that wears very fast. I learned from my C-1 so I clean my blackjack quite often.
