Hello to you all.I have a 1948 sba tenor in nice condition Im sure its a relac. The horn is a lovely gold colour no dents some minor scratches, but about 35per cent of the lac is missing the rest very sparse in places and spotty.The question if I had it relaquered would it lose value.Racer.

If you're sure it is a relacq then the "damage" has already been done to the resale value. And probably a good new relacquer is better than a spotty old relacquer. Just be sure to have the relacquer done properly. Instruct the tech to do a chemical strip and not to buff the horn to remove surface scratches. A badly-done relacquer will definitely affect the value and at an extreme could affect playability.
