Epiphone Worn Cherry Sunburst to gloss finish

Recommended Posts

I recently bought a new Epiphone “Worn” Les Paul classic.  I have been out of music for a while  because I severely injured my shoulder.  I used to have a Gibson Goldtop reissue with P-90 pickups.  I loved that guitar.  I recently had a shoulder replacement and think I can play again, so I purchased this guitar to just play.  

I received the guitar and do not like the finish at all.  I didn’t realize just how flat the finish would be.  I should have done my homework, my bad. 

My question is does anyone know the process Epiphone uses to get a guitar to a “Worn” finish?  I am a painter and would like to clear it for gloss but do not know if it has had the grain filled or the finish sealed.  I have Google searched with no luck.  Hopefully someone can answer this.  Thanking you in advance!
