    I thought I was the only person who doesn’t like satin finishes!

    Convincing players a cost saving measure is a "feature" was one of the biggest wins for manufacturers in recent history :lol:

    So true. I like the matte finish on a black guitar when you're going for that stealthy look, any other color it just annoys me.

    I notice more resonance out of satin models, and I like that resonance. The fact it wears nicely and costs less is a bonus :lol:.

    Yeah buffing the finish to a gloss REALLY impacts the resonance of the instrument...

    Not that, the satin finish is usually thinner.
