Does anyone know what Dell'Arte uses for a finish on their higher end guitars? I have a 2005 special order Anouman - short scale 14 fret D hole, maple back and sides, simply beautiful. I stupidly put some nasty gouges into the top finish and get sick every time I look at them. My luthier started to work on them but is puzzled by the finish and keeps changing his mind about what it is. Thought at first it was a thin poly, then decided it was nitro, now is not sure. It seems to be reacting in unexpected ways.
