Hi all, I have recently acquired a Classic 50's Series Tele that has had an unfortunate relic job attempted on it. I am seeking some advice on whether or not the current sunburst finish is salvageable and I can get this guitar looking something like its former self. The front of the guitar has took the brunt of the damage, back is in good shape overall apart from one small patch slap bang in the middle and the sides haven't been touched. The finish on the front of the headstock is cracking quite badly and the serial number decal on the back could be picked off easily. Do you think it is too far gone to save the original paint job or is it possible to remove the scratched layers and then re-lacquer? The only bare wood is the patch in the bottom left. Would it be wise to have a go at the whole body or try to save as much as the original finish on the back as possible? Would it be a similar process on the neck in sanding down the current clear coat and refinishing? I guess that the serial number decals are beyond saving and I would have to buy new. Thanks for looking, any advice would be really appreciated.
