The finish isn’t lacquer, it would seem, but celluloid, a thin layer of (highly flammable) plastic. The fretboard binding’s loose, too. Not sure if the electronics function, either, but that’s kind of the least of my worries.

@jan Oh wow, this looks like a cool guitar. And a 52 year model? That's freaking old!
