Hello everyone,

I have a Peerless Journeyman & I noticed that at the edge above the switch the wood is rough (i.e. not smooth/polished).

You can feel it by touch as if there's polish missing there and you can see it with light (it is not glossy over that area).

I tried my best with the photos to give you an idea although it doesn't really show.

The troubling(?) thing is that it is on the edge of the woods (cover & sides).

So, here are the questions:

1.Is it alarming? will it eventually lead to some serious damage to the guitar?

2.Is it fixable? Is there something I or a technitian/luthier can do?

3.When I clean/polish the guitar, should I avoid polishing that area?

a good guitar repairman can add more nitrocellulose lacquer at any time.

at least that is what my top-notch repairman says. he does extensive repair and restoration work.

i would try to protect that part of the guitar until you get some lacquer on it.


Thanks for the reply but I am affaraid it is not nitrocellulose lacquer :_(

Also, how do you propose I "protect" that part? I am currently using ERNIE BALL Guitar Polish for the journeyman. Should I refrain from applying that on the "naked" part?
