In the thread on win a Webber I ask what upgrades would most affect the "sound" of the instrument. One poster suggested that the varnish upgrade would affect the sound "more than all the hardware upgrades combined".
As Spock would say " Fascinating Jim".
As a non builder, arguable mandolin illerate, I don't get it. Does a few micrometers thick finish really affect the sound of the instrument to that degree?
If so.... How?
