Thoughts on this '62 JM? Remove finish?

From the posted pictures I couldn’t really tell if there was original finish on it. Like to me it just looks like the shitty house paint slipped onto it. That headstock is a goddamn disgrace.

The headstock looks like an original finish that's spent a lot of time around cigarettes.

Looks like a cooool find!
What about the sound????

Oh, I definitely would not think about a refin. Yes, maybe some careful scratching on the muddy white area, but not too much.

I like it. :)
