1964 Telecaster Finish Restoration

By far one of my most favorite things to do is finish restoration. I love uncovering the life of an instrument. This 1964 Tele was one of my favorite restorations so far- it was like unwrapping a present! In this particular case, the original finish wasn't prepped for a re-fin, so I was able to save almost all of the original finish. As I started to remove the layers, it became very clear that this guitar was well played and much loved because of the wear marks in the original finish.  What a beauty!
