I did my first ever bass build with nitro lacquer about a week ago. One thing I'm noticing is that it dings really, really easily. Like, I dropped a screw on it from maybe a foot away and it created a dent in the surface. Another time I accidentally *lightly* hit it against the edge of the table and it dinged again. Keep in mind, if I had done the same thing with any of my other production basses (Fenders and Musicmans with poly finishes) there would not even be the slightest hint of a scratch. It's kind of insane. I'm wondering if I somehow applied the finish wrong or something? Maybe I did too much sanding sealer? I did about 4 or 5 coats of sanding sealer. Or maybe it's just not done hardening? I sprayed it about two weeks ago.
