Guys - What are your thoughts on this situation. I purchased this R9 new in early April and over the last month the nitro/clear started chipping off the bottom of the neck at the front edge of the binding. Can't really feel it while playing, but concerned now that it is starting to peel/chip beyond binding and into the wood. I've seen pics of heavily aged lesters and many have large amounts of nitro/clear purposely removed from neck. So, not sure if my situation is something to be concerned about. On this pic, looks like the Custom Shop taped nut diagonally before spraying. I would think they would spray the whole side of nut or tape it all off. Ok... A couple of gratuitous R9 porn shots. Here she is basking in the Oahu sun.
