This 80s era Partscaster/Tele copy has been sitting in its case, stripped of electronics for a few years. I decided that rather than buy a new guitar, I'd try to resurrect the old girl. This weekend the metamorphosis began. Yesterday I gave the body a thorough sanding of the existing finish with 400 grit, washed it with soapy water, rinsed it with water and vinegar, and let it dry overnight. This morning I gave it a few light coats of new satin finish paint. Updates will follow as progress is made.
