Hey guys, i have this beautiful 2018 american special stratocaster in sonic blue, bought it new and intend to keep it forever, HOWEVER, i didn't expect the paint to be this sort of thick plastic coating (polyurethane) which i now reckon will never age (at least not like the vintage strats).

I'm considering a NITRO lacquer refinish (professionally done), and i'm aware i'll be devaluing the instrument, just wanted to know what are your opinions on this because it's always good to see things from different perspectives and i might be missing something worth considering.

PS: i've played for years with my father's 70s sunburst strat and i love it, this is why i got a strat with big headstock in the first place, it's supposed to be my definite/number one guitar
