Hi all.
I have a 2006 model Metro MV5 Black.
A part of me kinda want to sand it up and make it Natural.
What kinda quality wood should i expect underneath?
Same as the factory natural ones or are those selected specially for their looks?

There is no doubt the nicest looking ash is reserved for natural finishes.  Paint grade ash might have some natural defects or other qualities that did not make it suitable for natural or burst finishes.

Sage advice.  As much as I love wood finishes, if I buy a painted instrument, I leave it as is.

Hey David.....I have to agree with Gerard and his sage advice. Also sanding it and changing finish could change the tone....IMHO.
