    Super guitar. I like it so much better than the BSB!

    How thick was the old paint and nitro/poly coat?

    Is the new surf green nitro or poly? Also did you do this yourself or have a pro spray her? What would this option cost if i wanted to finish my tele in a similar color?

    @dalandan: The finish was pretty thick. Click on the first link and you´ll get an idea! I used a heat gun and were able to peel it off.
    @dogfootblues: It is nitro. I did it myself and used spray cans. You´ll need sandpaper, sealer, 1-2 cans color, 2-3 cans clear lacquer, polish and so on. I think you in the U.S. have better online stores to get the stuff than we in Germany. I paid around 100 € for the project.
