Clearly Fender took an ugly great gouge out of the body, in the vague shape of a J pickup, then filled it in with pus-coloured gunk. This sort of thing used to happen at the Fender factory all the time - or so it 'is believed'.

Why did everyone feel the need to strip guitars and varnish them back in the '70's?

Because in the 70s no one wanted to buy a guitar with the paint chipped and worn away. If you part exchanged a really badly worn guitar with a dealer the chances are that they would have it either stripped or refinished before putting it up for sale.

It's just fashion. Much the same as the current trend to relic everything. Don't be surprised if in a few decades time people will be asking on forums 'why did they feel the need to relic everything in the 2010s'.

Yes a lot are but it still seems to be popular with a lot of people for some reason.
