More likely the front of the headstock was refinished because of the break? Sticker + overspray? Sounds odd. They don't show the front of the headstock in the pictures.At one point, a sticker lived on the front of the headstock. When the sticker was removed many, many years ago, it took the "Les Paul Model" silkscreen with it. There is a bit of overspray on the face of the headstock, which was done a very long time ago as well, and has checked nicely over the years.
