Sorry your post read like there was something wrong with blond nitro...

The point is....yes its been fucked with...but when all's said and done under the re-finish its still a 52 tele...I would be happy to own it at the right price.

the "nitro" bit stands for nitro cellulose.....which is the chemical make up of the paint....its the finish used on most "top end" guitars to this day...

The nice thing about it is, it wears and fades gracefully, unlike modern finishes which never wear and when chipped look horrible...
