I have a 1978 4001 in Jetglo....
The headstock is really beat up, in terms of missing paint..
The wood is in good shape though..
Can someone tell me what type of paint this is?? I am planning on re-finishing just the headstock...
Any recommendations would be appreciated...

Best Regards
Chris

Conversion varnish. You likely won't be able to use this, however, due to the equipment and learning curve, but nitrocellulose will be compatible with it. The trick, since you're in So. California where it's banned, will be to find some instrument quality nitro. Fancy a trip to Las Vegas?

Thanks John....
So in "thoery"... If one was to overspray this headstock in nitro, it should work out ??? With no lifting of the original paint????

Scuff the original CV so it has a nice milky white sheen to it and the nitro will bond right on to it.
