Nice deal on a 1960 but the finish was murdered...prime candidate for a refin IMO. Fair price I'd say

I wouldn't refinish that ^^ and a lot of that guitar's appeal is in the current finish.

It has character - and that's hard to come by in a refin.

That 1960 sold quickly. I hope it found a loving new home!

Someone took sandpaper to it - that's about as far from character as I can think of! I love some natural wear but eh. I'm on the fence on this one...

I didn't say it was original/natural wear. Just that it had character, IMHO.

But I'd rather have weird artificial wear on an original finish guitar (and I think it looks cool) than a refin, any day.
