Im from Sweden so bear with me on my English. Its my father inlaws bandmates old guitar that been hanging on the wall for 25 years and I'm thinking of buying it. The guitar was bought in the early 70s already refinished. I have pictures confirming it Whats been done over the years: -Instead of the original 3way switch he had 3 single on/off switches. One for each pickup. Leaving 3 ugly holes in the pickguard -The volume pot has been changed and some of the wires. -Refinished in a ugly sunburst sometime before 1973. Everything else seems to check out. Ive done a blacklight test och the neck and the hardware looks good and "right" My big question is if its maybe a burgundy mist lying underneath the ugly sunburst? As you can see in the routing area and neck pocket area the old finish is visible and in some finish cracks on the body you can see a sandwich of white, burgundy, white and thick layer och black/brown. I dont know if its been oversprayed prior to the sunburst finish and maybe its a olympic white from the beginning? the writing in the neck pocket says "dont paint" in swedish and its over the clearcoat (tried to wipe it with a cottonswab and denatured alcohol and the blue ink comes of not the clearcoat) The serial is 70369 (if i remember correctly) and pots dates 304-6207 and neck 11/62 What do you fine people think?
