DanyJr Posted August 24, 2019 Report Share Posted August 24, 2019 To the Gibson experts here, I have a question. I've been reading all about Fullerplast on the good ol' internet, about how "notorious" it is with regards to not letting the guitar 'breathe' as opposed to a Nitrocellulose laquer, affecting the sound of a guitar in a negative way, etc. all of which has to be taken with a grain of salt. But with regards to repairs it is common knowledge amongst luthiers that Fullerplast is extremely difficult/impossible to get rid of when repairing (a neck reset, for example). I'm in the process of buying a Gibson Advance Jumbo (serial number 91060001) and from what I've been told, most Gibson acoustics from the early 90s have a Fullerplast finish, but not all. Question is, is there a way to tell if the guitar has a nitrocellulose or a Fullerplast finish judging by the photos? I've included a few photos here for the expert eyes on this forum. Many thanks for your replies in advance. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
