    Do EBMMs finish check easily?

    I have a Charvel that I bought about 3 years ago and looked today and the finish had big ugly lines running right down the center of it. Do EBMMs do the same thing because I want to stop it before it starts if they do.

    Some of my Axis' are over 10 years old. No finish cracks, marks, or cracks anywhere.
    No malice intended. Just my opinion. Take care. Bob

    I have Balls going back to 13 years, and I bought most in the 90s. No finish issues whatsoever.

    Is the clear coat not Polyurethane?
    Would take a bomb to cause checking in that I think.

    it holds up really well- unlike the old nitro finishes.
    I've seen finish cracks on an EBMM, but they were caused by belt buckles (not the finish's fault).

    The finish is hard as nails. It takes a good amount of force to get through it, and the only cracks I've seen on these guitars is a stress crack at the neck pocket.

    You can't blame the paint/company for finish issues. Humidity is the culprit. If you don't keep your guitar in the proper environment you can have all sorts of problems: paint, binding, frets, neck, etc.
