    Is this one of those "guess the word missing from the title" threads? I'm going with "finishes".

    If Gibson keep on releasing clear finish LP's with shitty tops as the 2018 range then I don't think any checking or ageing is going to make it look like a more desirable instrument to be honest.  I mean, look at this stinker:

    https://www.andertons.co.uk/electric-guitars/gibson-usa-2018-les-paul-standard-in-mojave-burst-lps18mvch1180019205

    Someone at the factory must have been blind drunk when choosing those tops.  The grains are so washed out and thin I'd rather just have a solid colour Les Paul.

    Back to your original question, as Farley has shown, I think if you gig a Gibbo regularly then the finish will wear. 

    The only guitars that I've had any signs of wear since I owned them are my AVRI Strat and Tele but their finishes are so thin that you even look at them the wrong way and you'll get a paint chip!  Not that I mind!
    Why is that a shitty top? That looks far more like the real random top you'd get on a 50s Gibson than most of the photoflame lookalikes you usually see now. 

    I'd much rather have something which looked like an old stripped Gold Top than a 200 Cort.

  • Has anybody has any colour change with pelham blue over time?
    Couple of years back my pelham junior special developed about a dozen on so tiny “white” spots where the sun had hit it whilst on a stand - literally appeared in a day - no crazing or cracking though.
    There was no way something mite have been sprayed or splashed on it.
    A handful polished out but not totally.
