I have a 57 AVRI sunburst Strat, that I want to refinish. The original nitro is still good on the body. Can I paint over the original finish without having to sand it down. I like the look of having a second paint finish over the sunburst. Will there be any paint reaction of using the original nitro and reranch?

I've used reranch before and like it. Last project I did I used white reranch, but I used the Ace brand nitro clear, and it mess up the finished. It looked like it melted the paint, had to restart the whole project. I don't wont to have the same issue with my fender finish and using the reranch over it.

If in fact is finish is nitro, then ReRanch nitro is compatible. Repair any bad spots, level/scuff sand the surface, wipe with naptha, then shoot ReRanch nitro

To test, find a spot under the pick guard, put a drop of acetone on the surface with a q-tip and see if it softens the surface. If so, then it's nitro. If not then mostly likely a poly type finish
