    Fixing this guitar would destroy it, let it have it’s flaws cause they give the guitar it’s unique ”soul”!

    don’t restore it, it’s a real beauty
    a guitar gets beautiful with the time
    and like someone said, if it isn’t broken you don’t need to change anything
    that’s my opinion^^

    i wouldnt do anything to it, its a beauty. i love how the wood looks and how the binding is getting that nice creamy color. very nice. im allways curious about such things, you can help it a bit or ruin it all. if it once has lost a distinctive thing youll never get it back, and laquer is a very tone “critical thing”.
    so id say you must NOT restore 😀

      All in all you are right, but nitro lacquer wouldn’t totally fill the wood cells and lets the wood breathe. And any liquid on the wood would left spots on it.
      So I would go for one, only one, very thin nitro lacquer film around the body. But beside this, no restores at all.

    Well, I’m always saying: “If it ain’t broken, don’t fix it” 🙂 In this special case I would give the guitar a thin clear nitro lacquer finish to protect the wood. Beside that this guitar looks fine for me.
    I used to restore old furnitures in my job the past and its nearly the same there. Too many changes would get the characteristics lost. Just keep the old things working.
