This is maybe a dumb question and addressed before but can anyone tell me what type of finish Hamer USA used? Was it a poly type or nitrocellulose? I think what I'm understanding is that it is a type of poly and that is what causes the funny finish issues along the fretboard (the infamous Hameritus). Is this correct? I just wanted to educate myself on this. I would've thought Hamer would have used a more traditional type finish like nitro since that is what all the other classics used. The tone differences are all subject to much controversy however, if applied lightly it probably has minimal effect except when it comes to how they age. Any confirmation and comments would be great. Thanks everyone.
