Are you talking about a rough, textured finish on a Breadwinner?
There is wood underneath that paint.
So if you want it shiny black, you would just sand the finish off and repaint it.
Shiny gloss would take gloss paint and wax, right?
(I'm guessing... I know nothing about finishing guitars, furniture or automobiles)

I don't actually have it yet - pondering it, and my question is part of the process. Wouldn't mind terribly if the finish all got buffed off, but it's not a skill I possess, and I do like the aesthetics of the flat black/poly look.

Thanks. that picture doesn't do it justice, it's a very striking guitar, the gloss finish and white pickguard are really different. I have a picture of it somewhere from when Jas visited years ago. I'll see if I can dig it up.
So it was a UKII neck? It was very skinny. It felt very different than any Breadwinner or Deacon I've every played. Not bad at all, but it didn't feel like a Deacon/BW when you played it. I've never played another Ovation with that style neck. But I've never had the pleasure of playing a UKII, so I don't know.
