I have a 1955 Fender stratocaster that I want to have refinished to the original two-tone sunburst. Does anybody have any recommendations? I contacted Ed Roman but he's dead now, Paul von Schmidt refretted it about 10 years ago but he didn't have a name for a good nitro refinisher, does anyone here have a suggestion?

Here's the body freshly stripped of the old black finish. There's yellow under the candy apple red. I've owned this guitar since November 1980 with the black finish, now it's getting the two-tone sunburst, ah, to be 18 years old with $1,700.00 in my pocket was a really, really good thing. http://www.flickr.com/photos/100168049@N04/9492464226/ Here it is before stripping -http://www.flickr.com/photos/100168049@N04/9492510174/

I called Paul von Schmidt, he re-fretted the guitar about tens years ago. When I told him I was re-finishing it he said, "No, don't do that, It'll change the tone. I remember that guitar well, that is one guitar I didn't want to give back." Too late, it's stripped. He said the only place he'd send it to was Lay's guitar shop in Akron, Ohio, so I sent it there. They're going to do the complete relic job I've always wanted. I had many pre-CBS strats and sold them all but the '55 which I bought when I was 18 in 1980. Thanks for the response.
