I've never worried about that, no. The oxidation patina on some of my slides gets a little scratched, but that's such a thin layer it doesn't impact anything. I've never noticed any significant scratches on my glass slides. I have one tone-bar but don't play that much lap slide and I could sell my bar as "Like new. Only played by a little old bottleneck player who only plays lap slide on Sunday..."

Maybe someone else has a high mileage tone bar and can chime in.
