I am having my first custom bass made, by my favourite luthier. When delivery was due, he came up with few problems.
According to him the acrylic finish is taking way too long to dry then it supposed to on flame maple top. Here is the photos taken full 2 days after acrylic was applied (according to him again).
So my questions are;
1- After mild sanding to the bass you see above, would the result be good? (There are plenty fingerprints on bass atm as I can see)
2- Is it normal for acrylic finish to take 2 days to dry? Or is it kind of delaying tactic?
Thanks in advance.
