    I'm confused now. Which is the myth? Poly, or nitro?

    Poly? I'm confused. o_O You said that nitro was a myth earlier.

    What exactly, in your humble opinion, is the finish on my red Strat pictured above? I'm fascinated to know the truth after all these years.

    You couldn't see the pictures of the book Fender themselves put out?

    Why don't you stop trying to score points & just answer my question? And why have you turned this thread into something confrontational?

    He's got a book. Fender themselves tell the whole story.

    OK, please explain to me what the detailed differences are between what we all know as (and what Fender describe as) nitro & acrylic? How do they differ?

    Did you even read what Fender themselves say?

    What you are saying is entirely possible. One thing I know for sure is that much of the exact details of Fenders pre CBS era is speculation and anecdotal evidence, as they did not keep very good records, and there certainly are many myths and legends.

    However, keep in mind that you are bound to get some push back when you start tipping sacred cows.

    Hmm I don't see how.. but I have done my best to answer your questions. Look into some public records buddy. Open a book.

    Did you? You seem to be lot more confident about what it isn't than you are about what it is. What exactly is your agenda here? Because we now seem to be off-topic.

    Early on, Fender took its custom colors straight from General Motors under their original DuPont names and part numbers (“Duco” for nitrocellulose lacquer and “Lucite” for acrylic lacquer).

    It seems far more likely that you like to troll, since that's exactly what you are doing here. You haven't helped "people know stuff" yet.
