i seem to rememberhearing that it was originally a natural finish tele. glen decided that he'd prefer it black so painted it and that paint job has worn off over the years. In <a href="http://filmireland.net/wp-content/uploads/2012/08/thecommitmentsscreen.jpeg">this image</a> from the commitments you can see it having worn away from the lower front of the body and that has just spread over the year.

The Lambretta TeleIm pretty sure i read somewhere that its a korean knockoff too, or that the body is a knockoff and theres an 80s Japanese neck on it, ive seen it up close and it doesnt have the thickness at the nut that most thinlines i have played have... just a personal observation, i wouldnt take it to the bank
