Well Played Accoustic Finish Questions

Recommended Posts

have this guild dreadnought here with a little work required on the frets, action etc

it has some playing wear on the top to be repaired - the finish has been worn through in a couple of spots - the areas are roughtly palm sized

the guitar looks a little worn - to my eye a well played guitar has its own beauty

my gut feeling is intervene as little as possible in order to maintain the beautiful tone of this guitar -

it is finished in a matte surface lacquer which could be nitro or shellac - more likely the former

i am reticent to put anything on the surface [worn spots] as there is no moisture barrier

any one have some advice on a way of treating the worn spots??
