Hey guys. Need some advice. I have a 2005 620 fireglo & the finish is starting to flake off like it has become brittle. It doesn't go below the sheen but it appears that maybe it is from heat or sweat where my forearm rests over the top front of the guitar body. I've tried to clean it lightly but it just continues to flake off. It can't be seen from a distance or even a bit close but if you inspect it (as all of us guitar players do to our pride & joy), it is there. Rickenbacker makes it clear they don't cover this in their warranty & I understand their reasoning but I don't want to see the whole front of the guitar eventually flake off leaving a dull sheen behind. It almost reminds me of getting sunburned & the after affects, when the dry skin begins flaking off. Anyone else with this problem? See pic to show flaking area circled in black. (Hard to see in pic. Sorry!)
