    Must be poly on the body... shouldn't make you go crazy though :BITCH(unless you are going to try and refinish it using a hand sander like I did to my Peavey Predator)
    :jo
    Kick ass guitars... wait until you see the necks gleem in the light because of the gun oil tinted finish. Good Stuff

    Anybody ever take a chemistry class?
    Scotch tape, dammit! That's what they used! covered it with scotch tape and then fused it with a propane torch. Better than Nitro!:jo

    My 81 G&L Skyhawk checked like a LP in a matter of about a year. I am 100% sure it was nitro. Poly doesn't check like that, does it?
