Finish Type?

**Finish lead times are 16-20 weeks.** TruGrain is a new finish technique we are offering. The body is not grain filled, so it allows us to spray the finish thinner. This process removes a few ounces of weight, gives the body more resonance, shows off the beautiful wood grain patterns under the finish and looks super cool! (See our recent post on our “News” page!)
