satin finish/shiny spots

Recommended Posts

...i have seen many similar questions, but not this exact question.  also, i'll apologize in advance if it's discouraged to post stock photos to this forum, and use them to illustrate something contained in my question, which is,

is the shiny spot on the satin walnut finish of my ES-330 (in the area indicated in the photo) anything other than a cosmetic issue?  if i'm not bothered by how it looks, are there any additional reasons to be concerned about it?  does in need to be addressed?

 

thanks

photos are not discouraged,  you just need to host them some place else (imgur, flicker, FACEBook...)

Ok, so cant see photo, but shiny spots on satin finishes are common (maybe inevitable) especially where the picking hand rests.

If so, it shouldn't be any cause for concern.

If you buff a satin finish guitar it will get shiny all over.  So if you have a couple shiny spots it's because something is rubbing on those spots regularly.  Could be your hands, or something in the case, or maybe it just came that way originally.  But as Merciful said, it is not a cause for concern.

My red 335 Satin really came alive when I buffed out the whole thing with the two part Virtuoso stuff.  

I was afraid I'd screw it up and be kicking myself but it turned out just fine.
