Just wondering is Gibson uses nitro finishes on all of it's electrics. I read somebody's review of a new Les Paul Traditional and they disliked the high gloss, plastic finish. I thought all of their guitars were nitro. Maybe this guy thinks nitro feels like plastic? :dunno

As far as I know, yes. I've never held a Gibson that had a "plastic" finish. I've seen sticky ones, perfect shiny, perfect dull, ones with orange peel and ones finished like a deck rail but never plastic like a polyester guitar.

yes, all nitro as far as I know, but there are many threads on this and people say they use "plastcizers" in the nitro used in the modern era.
