"The last I checked finish had little to do with the tone and real quality of an instrument"

As a matter of fact, it does. Too thick or gloppy a finish can choke the tone of an otherwise good sounding bass. I noticed this 30 years ago when I went shopping for a backup for my '66 bird. The thin finish on the Blackbird works to it's advantage; that sucker really rings.

Great review, great bass
