refinish or not

Recommended Posts

I have a '48 L4 acoustic in a tobacco burst finish. It looks like it has been gigged in every blues dive between Chicago and Boston at least once. Someone it it's past has made an attempt at refinishing it some years ago. The back looks like original finish, but the top, sides, and neck look redone with a furniture varnish. I had a neck 1-7 refret done and it plays really nice. I would like to have the neck and body refinished to original glory. I don't plan to ever sell it. What would it cost to do a job like this? Or do it or not??
