2019 Les Paul Classic Binding Discoloration


Recommended Posts

I just noticed that the edge of the binding my 2 month old Les Paul Classic started turning dark gray where my strumming hand meets the body.




I have a very dry skin and I suspect maybe some of my moisturizers might be the culprit. I'd like to figure out what might have caused it to avoid further damage. Anyone else experienced similar thing?

Moisturizers and nitro sounds like a bad combo (or a peculiar Pride Parade anthem). Bet that's the culprit.


I wouldn't worry about it though. They say exposure is the key to curing OCD, and after a few dates abroad I'd gone from scrutinizing to "well, there's still a NEST in the amp but I think we lost the bats near Belgium, so it's all good. And no fungi on most of the fretboard. All set!" Highly recommended.
