    Right now these two basses are for sale brand new online. The Classic Series 60's is $100 more than the 60's. The only difference I can see is the Classic Series has a nitro lacquer finish, back of neck looks almost orange and it comes with a hard case. The 60's has a poly gloss finish, neck looks more yellow and comes with a gig bag. Am I missing anything? Also, will the nitro lacquer wear quicker than the poly gloss? Thanks.

    The nitro should wear quicker than the poly.

    So, the nitro is probably more sought after of the two since it will look like a road worn sooner, lol?

    Kind of but nitro also needs to be treated with extra care.
    Stains from contact with plastic won't make it look roadworn.

    At the risk of sounding stupid, what do ya mean by "stains from contact with plastic?"
