Nitrocellulose Lacquer Back Refinish
1975 Ryoji Matsuoka M30R

Background: The East Indian Rosewood back to this guitar was ruined with heavy scratches which may have come from the player’s shirt buttons.

Repair: The back was stripped back to original wood. Layup epoxy was used to bring the color depth out of the rosewood. The back was finished with nitrocellulose lacquer and blended to the sides for an indistinguishable repair.
