If it was up to me I would take the plain oiled mahogany finish. I actually like it. But I can't form your opinion for you. Just do whatever you like, or get it professionally re-painted.

How would it wear down?

Are you going to be dragging the guitar up a mountain?

Once a guitar is oil finished, you can't just put paint on it.

With that being said, there's nothing wrong with oil finishes (if you look in my profile you can see I refinished my seven string from black to natural). In fact, some people even feel that the sound is better on an oil finished guitar than it is on one with a regular paint job, although I haven't noticed that much od a difference myself.

It's not going to wear down much quicker, trust me.


A regular paintjob will be a couple of hundred, but on an oil finished guitar, this isn;t possible.

Why does that even make any difference whatsoever?

People like different music, dumbass. Get over it.

Ibanez is one of the biggest guitar manufacturers in the world and the RG is their best selling model. This means that there's bound to be someone playing them that you don't like.

Also, given that Linkin Park is pretty damn well known, their guitarist probably uses a LACS model, as opposed to this one.
