6000 grit? Consider that a gibson varnish is not as thick as other ones. As I said it's very subtle, but the difference is there, it's like removing cement from wood, something changes to resonance. Can you hear it and prove it? Maybe on a new guitar you can't prove it, but if the sanding occurs to a guitar that you played years and years, you would notice the subtle difference in sound.With a 6000 grit light sanding? Sorry I don't buy that anyone can hear that unless they think they can up front.
Unfinished or heavily worn guitars should therefore be miles brighter.
Possibly cleaning it helped if it was extra grungy.
I don't know how anyome can play filthy guitars.
