Today, I’m putting the Nitrocellulose vs Polyurethane debate to rest: does a guitar REALLY sound better in a Nitro finish? I took my Eric Clapton Strat to Tony Schroom to get refinished in nitrocellulose, and recorded the guitar before & after the refin to see what the real differences between nitro and poly are. The results are SHOCKING!
