I second that notion. To me, it looks like the previous owner painted it with nail polish/varnish. Makes me wonder though, did that logo really make the body into an ugly duckling? Oh, and if it does turn out to be varnish, by all means DO NOT use acetone to remove it or you'll strip it down to the metal. Learned that the hard way!
