    IMG_20171115_212933.jpg Hi, how could I fix the cracking and bubbling on the nitro on my Les Paul studio? I was thinking razor blade and or sand paper down while avoiding the logos and then shooting clear to build back up to wet sand flat and polish?

    What s
    Do you think?

    Strip and re-do.

    This era guitar has issues with the clear bonding to the lower. Whatever minor fix you do it will not work, and it will simply peel in the areas you haven't fixed.

    There are Gibson and Les Paul Model waterslide decals available for the studio silkscreen level guitars.
