  • Could I Remove A Single Layer Of Paint From A Guitar?

    I got a 1954 harmony stratatone guitar (same guitar used by Ritchy Valens, Tom Waits etc.. Pre Stratocaster) for a great price, but some jackass took the stone's words to heart and painted it black.... the sad part is that on the headstock where the name is I can see the origional beautiful vibrant gold sparkle paint job.... which looks amazing.

    this thing sounds unreal but the paint job is so horribly done that everytime I look at it I just

    Can I fix this?

      any idea about what type of paint was used, acrylic, latex, spraycan, other ?
      if you don't know, you should experiment with these three methods

      Abrasive--"Abrading" the painted surface by manual and/or mechanical means such as scraping and sanding. Generally used for surface preparation and limited paint removal.

      Thermal--Softening and raising the paint layers by applying heat followed by scraping and sanding. Generally used for total paint removal.

      Chemical--Softening of the paint layers with chemical strippers followed by scraping and sanding. Generally used for total paint removal.



      that didn't help much

          depends acrylic has different solvents to poly

          BUT those solvents may also remove or negatively effect the poly underneath (if thats what it originally was)
