I'm playing around 200 shows a year, mostly with my Super J, and I'm curious as to how I can expect the finish to break in. I really dig the played in "reliced" look, and I'm hoping my Super J will look like that in a few years. I've been a bit dissapointed that my super thick poly'd Steinbergers from the early 80's still don't have a scratch on them - no matter how much I beat on them. Will my Super J suffer the same fate? Will it still look new-ish 20 years from now?

Maybe Sheldon can "relic" it for you?

Nah - I'm not interested in a fake relic. I'd just like my bass to look like I've been playing it every once in a while...

Judging from my own experience, Sheldon does not rely on thick finishing. Taking that into account I suppose that in 20 yrs your Super J will be individually relic'd by your use. you may look closer to my "Uber Alles" Prima (oil finished) that has few finger marks from almost 10 yrs of medium to heavy playing

The neck will wear in nicely, but the finish on the body is designed to withstand wear, tear and Canadian winters.

I am more than happy to hear that Dingwalls are designed to withstand wear, tear and relic-ing by normal use!!! Personally I don't like relic-ing

I agree with fullrange for the most part. In the case of the Super J, it might look cool to have it relic'ed. Like a 60's J with fanned frets and Dingwall electronics... mmmmmm :wink:
