VOS Finish Question

After reading all the info (hype? ) on the new VOS models, I was curious if anyone knew what type of lacquer is being used?

Seems that the finish is not like a Custom Authentic, where the guitar is simply not given a final buff (or aged with some fine steel wool. The CA's still used the same regular production lacquer as I've seen one buffed out. It looked like a brand new guitar with a high gloss finish).

I've also read that a non VOS guitar, meaning one with a nice gloss finish has an upcharge in the $300 to $400 area?

Can a VOS guitar be buffed to a high gloss finish? This could be done by hand with just a few different polishing compounds... if the lacquer will allow it.

Most likely.
