We're all still clueless about what happened to this guitar.  My best guess is that some chemical was spilled and took the finish off, then someone attempted to cover it up with pinkish-red nail polish... Whatever the case, we didn't want to completely refinish the top.  Here's how it came out with just sunburst matching and a little extra black around the edges.  Somehow I didn't manage to get a picture of it all string up, but I'm sure you can imagine!
