Refinishing and big touch-ups can ruin the resale value of a vintage Martin Guitar. Don't do it! If there are chips that affect your playing, by all means do something with them but do not refinish or do big finish repairs unless you have no intention of ever reselling it. A nice refinish can make for a nice looking guitar but it also can rob you of the vintage sound. Many times the guitar needs to go through the whole opening up process all over again.

Good luck
