Ibanez RGD7421 - shiny spot problem :(

Hi guys! I recently got an RGD7421 and now on the area below the bridge pickup where I lay my finger, it kinda got shiny..

Any way I could take out this shine?

Oh, just go get some anti-shine.

I'm just kidding. You mean it's got a glossy part? Well you can get some fine grade sand paper, but then you'll have a scuffed up spot under your pickup. I'm not really sure what a quick fix might be that would look good.

Fine grade steel wool. Just about the best way to remove shine from a satin finish.

Alright - so any specifications on the fine grade steel wool? In doing it to the area, any specific method to do it to make sure the guitar is taken care of?...

I always just used #0000 and pressed lightly moving in a circular motion. Just pay attention to what your are doing and don't get too over zealous with your rubbing and you'll be fine . Some unsolicited advice: If you ever have a guitar with a gloss finished neck, just rub the back of it with steel wool to remove the gloss and make it play smoother.

My advice: be proud of your shiny spot. It shows that you actually play and marks your guitar as being distinctively yours. And besides... some people pay a lot of money for that road worn look.

^Exactly what he said. Dings and imperfections are what give guitars character, and prove that they've been through things with you.

I happen to provide affordable online session drumming, drum programming, mixing, and mastering! Hit me up via PM if you're interested.
