The TrueTone guitar brand was sold by Western Auto in the 1960s and early 1970s (see final photo, model #3).
Looks like the former owner was preparing to repaint the instrument. Original finish has been removed, mostly. I think it looks kinds cool just the way it is, one of a kind finish, but for anyone project minded it's almost ready for a fresh paint job.  THIS IS A VINTAGE 1960S ERA INSTRUMENT! PLEASE DON’T EXPECT IT TO SOUND LIKE, FEEL LIKE, OR PLAY LIKE THE 2022 SQUIER STRATOCASTER YOU TRIED OUT AT GUITAR CENTER!

All of my guitars have been fully tested and are functional. All of my guitars have been “set up” (neck straightness adjusted when possible, fingerboard oil treated (if rosewood/laurel/ebony), action set, pickup height optimized, intonation checked) to MY PERSONAL PREFERENCES (as LOW as possible). Please note: “setups” are not “one size fits all”. Your personal set up requirements might be different from mine, so, additional adjustments may be needed to suit your setup preferences. To protect the guitar from damage, the string tension will be relieved before shipping per Reverb.com requirements. You'll need to tune the guitar to pitch when it arrives. Let the instrument acclimate to your environment! Differences in altitude and temperature from my shop to your location have an effect on the instrument. You will NOT be able to pull this instrument out of the shipping box and start playing it!

Also, for optimal sound and playing ease, I advise buyers to put a new set of strings on the guitar, the string brand and gauge of their preference. If your guitar has a Tremolo Bridge DO NOT OVERTIGHT TREMOLO ARM WHEN YOU INSTALL THE ARM!!! YOU CAN DESTROY THE TREMOLO ARM BLOCK!!! I suggest you watch some YouTube videos about installing and using Tremolo Arms BEFORE YOU ATTEMPT TO INSTALL AND USE A Tremolo Arm.
