i am considering a guitar with a flat black finish and i just want to know if flat finishes end up looking sloppy with fingerprints or if they're not as bad as i'd expect. thanks.

no, you can hardly see them on a good matte finished guitar.
I can't stand watching people waste their money on horrible gear.

I dont have any experience, but i was thinking of painting mine flat black too. should look pretty good i think. maybe make an aluminum pick guard

I had the flat black Schecter Damien for a while and I personally though fingerprints showed up pretty well on it.

Flat black? Does that mean the black that's not glossy? If that's the case, the guitars i've played like that didn't show fingerprints nearly as much as glossy finishes.
Fender Hot Rod Deluxe
Gibson Faded V
Warmoth Strat copy
Epiphone Hummingbird (FS!!)
Ibanez SR400QM
Fender BXR100
Reggae Bass Covers mahn!!!

yeah, the black that's not glossy.. it doesn't shine, it's somewhat metallic and cold looking but not sparkly, just "flat"

thanks for more replies

my Loomis has a flat/satin red finish and I can't see any fingerprints whatsoever after I've used it!
But after a while grease stains will appear, but you can use some cloth to get them off!

I have a flat black Jackson RR, and there are virtually zero visable finger prints on it.
