On one of my guitars, where my arm hits the white binding, I'm seeing he nitro discolor to yellow pretty quick. I suppose I'm only noticing it on this particular guitar because of the white binding. I didn't think nitro would yellow in less than 6 months, but I guess it does! Doesn't really bother me too much, but I guess this is just par for the course?

Nitro usually turns amber from UV exposure. If it only where your arm hits the surface, it may be just dirt/grime or body oils. Try cleaning by wiping with napth or a guitar cleaning kit
