I have a Highway One Fender Strat (American), which I'm told has a poor quality satin finish. This has started to "melt" on the bottom of the guitar.
I paid about £800 for it in 2005/2006. It has a satin Daphne Blue finish (or there abouts).
I want to get it refinished, but am considering changing the colour (as I have the opportunity to).
Does it matter what finish is on the guitar? I'm thinking of going for a glossy Lake Placid Blue.
i.e. What I'm asking is, when my great grand children take my Strat onto the Antiques Roadshow, will they say "well... its a shame that it was refinished in a different colour.. that'll knock £0000s off the price" or will they not care what colour it is?
