V12 ON AN ACOUSTIC???
Has anyone seen or heard of a V12 finish on an acoustic? Why or why not would one choose this? I have it on a semi-hollow electric, and, I have handled alot of gtrs, and, I personally believe it to be the best gtr finish existing. It is incrediblly durable, feels slick and smooth, and most importantly it has a unique way of tying the entire instrument together into a resonate tone generating phenomena. Before I plug a gtr in, I rest my left ear on the instrument to listen to its acoustics directly to my head. Don't think this too strange unless you have tried it. This gives me a true taste of the tone without any seasoning of amps, mics, or ambient noise. Its the wood and strings directly to the ear. Anyway, with this new finish its almost impossible to do because the thing vibrates so intensely it will actually hurt my ear. It has an internal life that is too loud directly into the ear. As far as durability goes, I have accidently banged the V12 with blows that would have cracked acrylic for certain. In fact, the old "dipped in glass" reference to PRS finishes always sadly humored me a bit because in my past experiences I have found them to be so fragile that the really lived up to that reputation. Now this V12 is really special. I could go on with my opinions and I'm sure there are folks who hate it. This thread is not the place for that debate. What I want to focus on is the acoustic gtr finish question, since my feelings are now quite crystal that the V12 finish has done for gtrs what frosting has done for poptarts! -Thankyou-
