    It's not WHAT you play, but what you PLAY.

    If I were to guess, this looks like a “Classic Series ‘50s” model. The decal on the headstock does look like it has a lot of “lift” to it, but this is definitely not a fake as mentioned earlier.

    Just carve “I love this guitar” into the bare wood on the bout! :lol:

    I'd just play it, and after a few years I was still playing it, I would worry about it then. and If I still loved it, I guess I'd try to strip it with a heat gun and then decide what do with the finish. If I wasn't still playing it? well who cares at that point.
