1954 Fender Telecaster fire damage restoration

A sad guitar came into the shop. It had been in a bad house fire along with many other instruments.  I felt terrible for the man who owned the guitar, but luckily for he and his family they were all right. This unbelievably great 1954 Telecaster that he had owned for years was in its case and i think it saved it from a much worse fate. What did happen was loads of smoke crept into the case and made a new home on the guitar. After a full day using a few different cleaning methods I restored the guitar and she played and sounded AMAZING!
