Also, when I look at the wounded guitar the damage does not look like normally chipped wood. The blistering at the edges is strange and almost looks like heat damage. Odd.
I'm guessing that "blistering" is from adding clear epoxy over the damage.

"A friend" would have fessed up to using the guitar to play El Kabong.

Oh well -- I pulled it out and enjoyed playing it for an hour last night. Fortunately, the damage does nothing to diminish the playability or tone of the guitar - it's purely cosmetic. The pain has eased with time...

Everybody is a guitarist or wants to be a guitarist. As long as all work is done and problems are getting solved the folks in charge where I currently work don't really care how time is spent if it doesn't end in blood, bruises or other hurts. A little play can go a long ways. For learning and innovation then regular play, rest and exercise is a must to stay relevant.

That's the problem with being retired: how do you know when you're done?

On the bright side, you can play guitar anytime that suits you.

The top coat of most guitars is urethane, and it will scratch just as easily when it's on cf as when it's on wood. While cf doesn't need to be protected from heat and humidity, it does need to be handled with the same level of care as any other instrument if you don't want scratches.

What's an office?

Think of it this way.

CF guitars do not change or mature in tones. They are tough. If we don't see them as novelties that will appreciate in value, just take it as an expendable, play the hell out of it. 10 to 15 years down, get another new one.

How's that to get over scratch n dings? Haha.
