    i got the Cort 3535.. but i dunno if it's clear laque ( mat ) or wax finish.. i mean.. it feels almost too smooth for wax.. but it's too dull for laque..

    help ? :(

    Or even...thing us a thong!

    PS When I said thick - maybe I should have said dense or luxuriant?

    Test it with lighter fluid (naptha).

    If its laquer, naptha wont disolve the finish.

    If it's wax or oil, naptha will remove the finish.

    The test spot is super easy to refinish if it happens to be wax.
