    Does anyone know what kind of clearcoat type finish Pedulla (or similar fretless) uses to coat their fretless fingerboards? Are there any tricks to doing it right? Thanks for the info.

    According to the Pedulla web site, they use a "thin coat of polyester (80% as hard as glass)."

    Polyester smells awful and can be very toxic in an enclosed area. Either spray this stuff outside, or, better yet, get someone to do it for you.

    HTH,
