I have this Tele thinline (circa 1973 or 1974) that I got as my first "real" guitar back in highschool. I play other stuff now, but have always kept this for sentimental reasons and because it still sounds great. At some point, the finish was coming off at the lower bout (is that what that part is called?), and in an hour stretch of stupidity, I scraped it off. Here's how it looks like: I was thinking of having the guitar refinished and relic'd evenly to match the rest of the body... but then a part of me also wants to keep the look as natural as possible. I'm also concerned that since there doesn't seem to be any more finish covering that part of the body, that air/humidity/sweat will eventually do more damage to the guitar. Thoughts?
