Point-of-View Vintage Touchup

In this video you get to see what I see! During a restoration of a vintage archtop, I was asked by the owner to "make the worn area less apparent." I don't really like the thought of over-spray on vintage instruments, so there is a lot of touch-up and blending used in my restoration projects. In this particular case I used various custom made satin colored lacquers to help seal and protect the bare wood, and blend it in with that great looking burst! Wow!
