Pouts better

I've had this guitar a long long time.

The finish is starting to let go and flake off. Rather than let it continue to age, I'm having it refinished.

I no longer have decent spray facilities for the quality of sunburst that I want, so I'm simply going to Pay Da Man to have it done.

Here's the current look.

Pics to follow when I get it back.

52 years of use and abuse...and it still looks pretty good.

Here's a pic of the work in progress.

If this were a valuable instrument, I would have stuck with the original tobacco burst. But I'm me, and I like the look of a CSB on a small archtop.

So there =o)

Done.

Refretted, new nut, stripped, filled, and finished.

It plays and sounds fantastic

I'm a happy guy.

Before and after pics

I used to have a sunburst T-100 "Slim Jim" (basically a Starfire III with a single Franz soapbar and "harp" tailpiece) but sold it to a friend, who subsequently peddled it to another (mutual) friend. I've made a couple of half-hearted attempts to buy it back, but can't seem to pry his grubby fingers off it.

Mine had the "open-book" headstock like yours but with the "Guild"inlaid (instead of painted) and a chesterfield as well. So I'm guessing it was of early-to-mid '60s vintage since it has the older headstock shape. Open-backed tuners. It has also lost some finish, especially where the back and sides are joined. There is binding where the top and sides meet, but not in back.

Yours is a beauty! I like BOTH "before" and "after" PICs!

Good on you for bringing that cool old guitar back to life. Now it's good for another 52 years.
