There are poeple selling Spring Sound decals on ebay, some very fine sandpaper, a can of lacquer, and an hour later no one would know! I think restoration would probably add a few $ to the price.

Springy Sound Wanted

Ideally looking for a black/maple or 2T sunburst/maple ST-80 but would consider others.

I'm in the UK but dont mind paying international shipping.

Please email me jc_anderton@yahoo.com with anything you have.

Cheers

The guitar is to play, not a collection piece, I wonder if...
