Why am I obsessed with nitro? Is it a huge difference?

    That's true too. Also their string cheese would probably be awful.

    My first quality guitar was a Kramer Baretta. How I loved that guitar - still do to this day (though I wouldn't be caught dead playing it in public:lol:). I spent my teen years playing the piss out of it. I played more in those years than any phase of my life.

    An impressionable youth, I'd look to Guitar For the Practicing Musician for guidance. So these are the guys I need to be listening to? Warren DeMartini? Jake E. Lee? George Lynch? How misled I was....but I digress.

    I'd see these "Guitar Gods" with their spandex and feminine hair dos. Never got into the whole look of it all....but those guitars - they looked so COOL!!!

    Player after player with these maple necked 80's hair metal guitars that were totally relic'd up. It looked badass!!

    So I played harder and harder. Surely some day my Baretta would bear the fruits of my labor! Well, it never did.

    See that poly was easily 1/4" thick and damn near indestructible. Sure, there are some ugly dings, but it just never wore off - anywhere.

    This is why I like nitro.

    I'm from that era, except for me it was a dark blue Kramer Striker (my 3rd axe, and what I believed at the time to be my first "real" guitar).

    Read all of those guitar magazines too, and can readily play you 20 seconds worth of almost every song transcribed in them from 1989 to 1992.

    Yeah I hate that too, that's the reason I refinished my jazz bass from the paint it had for 15 years (some kind of poly or single stage) to nitro lacquer, now I know its gonna wear to some degree in the next few years.
    The sound did not changed at all ;)
