about 2 months ago i got an ibanez rg321mh, black distressed wood finish

the problem is, the finish is wearing off rapidly. there are small bits and patches where it's come off and you can see the wood underneath

and it didn't help that a floor tom fell on it earlier, chipping it

but normally i take care of it-i don't throw it around jumping on it or anything...

any ideas what i can do to save the finish?

Spray some clear coat on it?

If it has an oil finish, that's a bad idea.


If your guitar is chipping, try super glue. It's not a glamourous solution, but if there are only a few specific area where the finish is wearing off, fixing it with super glue might be a good idea and if you don't overdo it it won't be too visible.

I figured since it was "black" that it wasn't, but I'm not positive by any means
