Clean Strat Overhaul!

(photo- J.C.i. Customized Guitars)

John iliou, a luthier in Ontario Canada, features a nice little documentary page about overhauling his '79 Strat.

Underneath all the thick polyurethane, John discovered a beautiful ash body that he decided to simply oil finish. As a result, the guitar also recovered more body resonance and sustain. The stock pickguard was replaced with a maple one.
