I currently own an Ibanez RG560 (1989) in Candy Apple Red. However, it contains many dinks, scratches and cracks, some of which expose the wood. Is it worth getting it stripped and resprayed to get rid of these markings or will the overall cost decrease?
It would probably kill the resale value unless it was a very good refinish. If anything the cracks just add character
there is a difference between 'roadworn' and 'battered' so its up to you really. If you just want something to do and plan on keeping it, work away dude, try swirling or do something unique.
