My thoughts are this. I have not seen a vintage instrument with a finish in a condition that I like and I don’t want to baby my guitars so I am not interested in a Nitro finish. But there are some patters of wear that I like, specifically the smooth wear patterns you get on the upper part of the body where your arm is; especially on those basses with a older layer of pain underneath. There is no way that I am ever going to wear through my Poly finished basses in that way and would have to get it re-coated anyways if I did. So I am wondering if anyone makes a production instrument of this style; or am I going to have to find a custom shop. This is more about a specific look artistically than looking old. I am not worried whether the wear patterns are realistic or not.
