Finishes?

  1. What´s a satin finish?
    I have a Miller bass, Sunburst. Is the 3 tone sunburst a satin finish?

    Well i used to have (recently sold) a Hohner B2a bass in "metallic satin' finish and it was like a grey/silver type color. Im guessing the sunburst is not a satin color.

    well every colour can be satin, satin just doesn't reflect as much light as the gloss does, theres probably more too it.

    High gloss finish - very reflective and shiny
    Gloss finish - reflective and shiny
    Satin - less reflective
    Matte - you get the point? ;)
