My 17 Standard lives in the case, it is as flawless as the day l purchased it. I bought an Eastman Solid Body "59" Varnished about the same time..for me it's a far better all around guitar in EVERY aspect..sucks to say this about a Chineses product but again...for ME.. it's true. So my LP is a case Queen.I treat mine very badly. Especially regarding temparture changes. The guitar is located in my bedroom and during the day, it gets cold because the window get opened for fresh air. In the evenings it gets warm, because the heating is on. For a couple of years already.
This, in combination with my very sweaty hands and the fact that it is my only guitar and because of that gets a lot of playtime, has caused some finish problems; the finish is wearing down all the way to the bare wood in the areas where my hands make most contact with the guitar. haha.
However, the guitar has never disappointed me, neck relief doesnt change and it stays in tune. That is why I love it.
How do you treat them?
