I like the distressed look a lot, and yes I don’t think it should have a fine finish. I did not do a lacquer finish on the ebony keys, I simply sanded them to 400 grit and used black shoe polish. I was reading an article on piano restoration and they discussed the use of shoe polish to keep the luster of the ebony without it looking like a high gloss modern plastic finish. When you get a chance can you shoot me an email, want to know if you still have some of the sets of reeds you were thinking of selling at one time. Are you working on any other Melodica projects 🙂 chugging away here on the current project,just wish I had more time available 🙁
