    Fullerplast, maybe... but, I don't think there is any finish that can stop dent's.
    Careful handling is the only thing that works.

    None of my guitars are handled carefully. They are used well.

    Give it time. It takes a heck of a lot longer than people think for the polymerization to complete. It could take several weeks to a couple months.

    Polyurethane type finishes cure in 2 ways. Evaporation and polymerization. Evaporation takes a few days. Full polymerization continues and takes much longer.

    Until then, the finish is not at full hardness.

    Did some more edge rolling, then rounded the fret edges a bit. Much better now.

    Post all you want. We love pictures!

    The fret edges look sweet. Very nice attention to details.
