The basswood is a thin veneer and is only there to keep the finish from sinking into the grain of the alder.

Would you want the white to look flat and even or sink into all the grain and look like white "grain"?

if you repaint it over and over, won't that be enough to have that nice white the 7vwh has?
also, does fender strat or ibanez other guitars have this veneer layer to have the "not grain" color?

Could you paint a cheese grater 100 times and have it look flat when you're done?
