    A buddy of mine made this happen today. The stars aligned and this became available so we scooped it up.

    I grabbed this used from GuitarCenter here in San Diego, Never thought I'd find one locally.

    My one complaint is that the finish is coming off with the slightest pressure from my fingernail/pick. I'm talking LIGHT. Like you'd touch a sore touch. (maybe a little more pressure, but you get the idea)

    Is there a way to fix this, or have any of you M80M players experienced this?

    At any rate, this is my dream guitar. It sounds insane through my Bugera and I hope my neighbors like Meshuggah, because that's what I've been playing...




    Thanks again, J.

    Mate I feel you, I rubbed the finish too hard with a microfibre cloth on my M80M and it started to wear off. I suppose you could spray laquer on it, but I kind of like the worn appeal, shows it is being used.

    I say just play it and enjoy. These guitars looks X100 better when they are worn it.

    One complain I've heard about the M80M was that it doesn't wear nearly as quickly or easily as the M8M Japanese counterpart.

    That's a great idea, I'll take a microfiber to it and at least clean it up. Thanks for the info, dude.

    Congrats man - out of curiosity, was this in La Mesa? I frequent the San Marcos location and the first thing I search for once inside is one of those.
    Also, those things do look pretty good worn-in.

    Yeah, it was the one from the La Mesa location. I can't believe someone turned it in, because whatever cash/credit they got I don't think would be worth it, honestly.

    If you ever find yourself down in San Diego (92118 area), please feel free to hit me up if you want to come hang out and play it sometime. It would be great to meet another SSO ERG player.
