Just one of the tips I've picked up from all the collective wisdom here,
get a UV security pen thing they usually come with a small torch to read the invisibe ink, you can use the black light to determine what varnish it is.
Very nice looking guitar.


Can you explain this further and/or link to a post discussing it? How exactly do you tell with the light? Does nitro glow different or something? Let me know, for I may have to order one of these pens.


Use acetone (fingernail polish remover). You can buy it anywhere and a bottle will cost a buck.

Will search around there's a post somewhere about determining types of varnish.

Hi Ramblin,
Did you manage to confirm whether or not this is nitro-finished? Just curious...
Thanks,
Chris


Hi! Used some fingernail polish remover (without acetone), and it dissolved the finish.. So it is nitro, and has a v-neck. I guess the conclusion is that I have an ST-80.

One hell of a guitar..

Nice find--and worth a fair bit more than an ST-50!
