1943 Maple J-45

 

 

This maple J-45 has an aged/relic’d refinish on the top.  You can see in the close up that it has quite a bit of induced finish crazing to help the top match the original finish on the back and sides.  The last picture is another guitar with an original finish.  This photo was used as a pattern for the sunburst refinish on the maple J-45.
