Post Dings and Scratches....
So I have 2 301s, and one has a couple of dings and a scratch....Well, it makes me feel sorta bad. Does anyone else have any dings or scratches or mishaps on their pgm guitars?

I've seen some dude on YT with PGM 500 with loots of crappy sticker on it, covering almost whole guitar so yeah...


There's no way you can save the guitar from scratches (you'll always get some screatches from picking, pressing the back of the guitar against a belt, putting it against a table etc.), and about dings - well - they just happen sometime ;)

Found a tiny chip in my pgm301 last week.

I screamed obscenities very loudly :(

WHAT THE FUCK IS THAT? AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

I try and keep my gear in as good condition as possible but sometimes there's nothing you can do.

The used to own a Schechter and i was playing it for 2 hours or so with a belt on, I took the guitar off, looked at the back and almost cried.

Its always a little dissapointing to find the first scratch on one of your guitars, but if you leave it out of its case and paly it eventually you are bound to scratch it. You will get over it soon enough.

Since all my PGM's were bought used they all had a few small scratches dings to begin with. That makes it harder to find the new ones. I did feel pretty bad when I leaned my 700 against a table and it fell over. A small piece of paint was chipped off the top of the headtock. It took a few weeks, but I got over it.

Actually all his guitars seem to be in 100% perfect condition.. :?

About dents and scratches I hate them.. I dropped my destroyer once and it chipped and it was fucking scary. Luckily I was able to fix and touch it up. For me dropping a guitar is like dropping a baby.. I wouldn't want my baby dented. :?

Not a pgm, but an rg 770:
worn down knob and full of dings
don't feel bad about it, the scratches and dings are what sets your pgm appart from every other pgm, they give character.
