We restored this guitar in 2001. The original finish was badly damaged on the back, there was a crack on the back of the body and the fingerboard was very dirty:

b4 front
b4 back

We refinished and cleaned up all the brass:

after front
after back

The owner at the time opted to not tint the finish to mimic the aged color of the orignal paint. Pity the photos don't show it off well, this is a really fine guitar.

Exactly, Mica. There is one glaring thing wrong with this guitar, though. That it isn't mine is the problem, LOL! It is certainly a unique piece. I hope the new owner appreciates what he has, enjoys playing it, and takes good care of the thing.
