We got a call from a gentleman that wanted his 1959 Stratocaster refinished. He gave us a little history on his guitar. The guitar belonged to his father, the late Mr. Pappas. Being the handyman and jack of all trades that he was, he took it upon himself to refinish the guitar with house paint. He said it looked great back in the day, however it didn't hold up very well over almost 50 years. So, after a lot of consideration he decided to have the finish restored back to a vintage nitrocellulose finish. Here is the end product of our 1959 Stratocaster finish restoration. It was such an honor!

Below are a few pictures of what it looked like when it arrived at BadMojo Vintage Makeovers.
