What typical fingertip wear looks like
This photo shows the fingerboard of a classical guitar beginning to wear because of friction and the natural acids that are common to the hands and fingers. This guitar was manufactured in 2010 and gets played a few hours a week. The fingerboard by the nut (where a majority of chords are played) shows the most wear.
NOTHING else on the market today can offer this kind of protection to your instruments fingerboard. Only Neck Illusions has proven to make this claim!
