How annoying are spiky guitars by which i mean anything that has more that the 2 cutaways most guitars have. I have a Jackson Warrior and in less than a year, ive chipped the paint off each of the back spikes once I was just wondering about anyone else's experiences with simlilarly shaped guitars, and if anyone has any tips on repairing, or even better, protecting those vulnerable points on said guitars.

Thing is, i even hav a padded softcase and it still chips in that.. I dont think it will be fully safe until I get a hardcase with foam in it..

my ironbird has has no chips on the edges and its slightly more than 20 years old. and thats from making sure that the guitar is in its case when not in use and that it was not tossed around carelessly. thats the only advice i can really give about protecting the edges on guitars

get a cheap marshall... my MG15DFX has a button that simulates the sound of one of the expensive tube marshall amps.

My King V's got knocks and dings all over (especially in the corners) after owning her for almost 3 years. Its just a plain glossy black finish though so I dont worry about it too much. She's just got some battle scars!
a guy told me that the tremolo bar was called the "distortionator"

Well my Dean ML is 24 years old now, and it's in pretty great shape. There's only one ding on the bottom corner.

Now my Razorback...it's the last super-pointy guitar I'll ever own. You have to eye them way too much because the points are so fragile. The durability of your wood isn't gonna change anything, it's the finish that is chipping. I've got chips on both of the lower wings...
