    This is a question regarding a project bass I'm building. Its not an acoustic, its a standard small bodied electric but I know KS visits this area of talkbass more than the electric side. So here's my question. I'm looking for a durable satin finish for my project bass. Ken I know you use a special forumula for your production bases. I'm not asking for that but could you suggest an easy to apply satin finish? I've used Stew-Mac nitrocellulose on a few projects before but I find it chips way too easily.

    Thanks in advance. BTW, I've owned several of your basses and love them.
