Note the area just above the strings where the paint has been scratched off. I've seen this on a whole bunch of old guitars. Usually, the rest of the guitar is in good condition, just that spot of missing paint.

How the HELL do you manage to scrape it off? I've had my Ibanez for over 4 years, and the finish is still fine on it...Is my playing not intense enough or something?
he must be playing some Slayer

I like this guy, he's UG's Greek, and he just told your ass in two paragraphs. And I once spent 5 minutes watching his avatar.

Some people scratch it off on purpose to look like they have been shredding lol.

I got crap to do, okay? Counter-Strike isn't going to play itself.
... No clue. How the pick actually scratches this zone is beyond me. I doubt it's actual picking. But eh...
I reckon it's done on purpose, or he holds the pick really poorly.

Very very very heavy pick and some incredibly sloppy playing is the only thing I can think of, apart from intentionally doin it.

how do you even hit that spot? The only place I ever hit the body of the guitar with my pick is the place between the two pickups under the high e string

No. In Soviet Russia, Hell goes to you,
I can't see any reason for that. It looks very bad too; ruined the finish on a decent looking guitar. There's no way he did that by picking unless he's secretly an emo hardcore type guy who attempts "break downs" way too often, what with his triplets and plam muted chords.

EDIT: lol, just realized I mentioned "emo" and "breakdown" in the same sentence...funny stuff.
I have no idea, I've got guitars older than him that are in better condition
Actually called Mark!

Oh, DON'T use a knife. It cuts through your strings. I did that once, thinking, its the Low E, its invincible. Turns out, its not...

Eh it's no biggie... That always happens to my guitars when I pick with a cheese grater...

Gah, from the sound of it, you guys haven't ever used a cheese grater as a pick....
