and while im at it they have a new satin finish good for them but they say its just as durable as poly isn't the point of satin so it wears quicker?

Where are they located? Aren't there some locations that forbid nitro spraying?

Warmoth does nitro necks, but not bodies. Their poly finishes are very thin and wear surprisingly quickly, much like nitro.

Satin finishes are purely aesthetic, nothing to do with wearing more quickly.

Health & safety reasons (Nitro's extremely carcinogenic nature & overall toxicity), and EPA laws prohibiting its formulation and use. Besides, as was mentioned, the old nitro formula that isn't the same as modern nitro was very nasty stuff to begin with. It seems arguments for the "superior tone-yielding" qualities of nitro aren't enough to convince those government authority figures and healthcare experts in a position to know better to change their stance in nitro.:nono

When did Warmoth stop doing Nitro? re EPA: You can do most anything you want, but it may take some investment in equipment to do so.
