I just read his webpage, and he claims that there is a tonal difference in lacquer as it is applied to a guitar.Just so you know, 8 bomb doesn’t build guitars. He isn’t bashing the build, so just relax. He is an expert in varnishes and lacquer finishing. I have been following him for a few years and he is very informative, does beautiful work, and he knows his stuff.
That is bull, the lacquer or finish does nothing more than cover and protect the wood, it does not affect the tone at all. He obviously does nice finish work and studied with some premier builders, but we have seen a lot of these guys come down the road for some time now.
