Heh, my G15 could use a painjob too TBH, I've worn the heck out of it. Mine is the first version with the swivel LCD though.

Yeah the black paint seems to wear off after a while and then you have completely translucent keys. hasn't happened to me but I've seen others with it.

The G15's that were sold first did have that issue. They fixed the issue in later batches.
The G15 v2 also doesn't have the issue.
