Dave, I assume you mean by "too shiny" the gloss on the wood finish. FWIW, I have a 16 Philly Fox AE 30" that came to me with the wood refinished, and very glossy. I spent some time asking how to best knock back that shine. I ended up doing it myself successfully with Birchwood Casey Stock Sheen and Conditioner. I was a bit surprised at how easy it was to use, very controllable to cut the shine black to whatever level you want.
Good luck with the CCH, Travis. Plz show us the before and after pics.
