I just purchased a 1980 White T-60 body. I know that the natural and burst bodies were finished with
polyurethane; did this also apply to the solid colors, or were they finished with some other type of paint, such as lacquer?

I read on Guitar Re Ranch that polyurethane is very difficult to remove, and the best thing to do with polyurethane is to sand it down, prime over it, then apply color and clear coats of lacquer.

Any answers/tips on this subject would be much appreciated.

Gene

I don't know about the paint but someone in the forum knows everything about it. I am looking at an early 80's T15 that is painted red. I heard that the solid color bodies of these guitars were made out of mahogany isntead of ash like the natural finish ones. I was thinking of removing the red paint and changing it to surf green. Consequently, I would be interested in knowing how to refinish it. The ferrite PU's in these guitars almost sound like P90's. What say you Frank Peavey?

Thanks Raptorman,

I read the stuff on Chip's Tips this morning and tried writing him at the email address given on the
T-60 Mafia site, but it came back undeliverable.

Sorry about the busted link for Chip's email. The guy that is working on restoring all the old stuff from our original T-60 site/forum hasn't found all the bugs yet. Shoot me a PM with what you want to ask Chip plus your email address and I'll forward it to him.
