Gibson les paul maple top endurance to scratches


Recommended Posts

@mihcmac cheers, will u tell me more about the nitro finish, is it inclined to easy cosmetic problems?are micro scratches common? 

to be honest i feel like this material is easily scratched (maybe because it feels like a bubbly soft and a slippery one)

Nitrocellulose is a very hard fast drying Lacquer finish that continues to harden with age. It Gibson uses it because they can put on a very thin tough layer to protect your guitar and enhance the sound of your guitar. Nitrocellulose is very toxic, when applying you need to use a well ventilated spray booth and wear a respirator...
