After doing some research, part of which I've learned from the people on this forum, I'd like to know if the following is true: Gibsons use a nitrocellulose laquer finish. This does not clog the wood and allows it to breathe. Over the course of time, the finish becomes thinner, and as the wood ages, the guitar sounds better. True? False? Epiphone uses a Polyester finish, which is more durable, but does not allow the wood to breathe, thereby causing the instrument to sound more "brittle". True? False? Ok, this leads up to my final question.... Epiphone makes an LP Vintage ,where the finish is apparently pretty thin. Would this make it closer to a Gibson's finish since it's thinner?
