Pedulla Buzz Fingerboard Question

    Ok, so I played a used Buzz bass the other day...least I'm pretty sure that's what it was. It was a fretless 4 string with fretlines. It's the one with the ebony board that looks like glass...I must say that's one of the sweetest playing instruments I have been able to play to date. I have been reading a little on the Pedulla website about the "Polyester Finish" they use to achieve the glassy look on top of the ebony board. Seeing as I don't foresee having the funds to purchase a Pedulla anytime soon can anyone give me any hints/advice on how one would come close to achieving that type of finish on an ebony board? What type of polyester is used for such a feat and what's the process? If anyone has any thoughts on the application they are appreciated. Thanks.

    I would guess its 2-pak poly applied with a spray gun...
