    Convince me not to sand my guitar, please

    Yes I would really feel bad about a body full of burnt spots and tool marks... I like your idea of trying in a not visible spot :) A friend me told me to just sand the neck, which seems like a pretty good Idea.

    Convince me not to sand my guitar, please

    Yes, i know that whatever I think, there is the potential for a much difficult szenario. There are videos in youtube where you can see a guy removing poly from a guitar with just a hair dryer (the guy is not especially careful ant also removes some chunks of stained wood). One could think...

    Convince me not to sand my guitar, please

    Thanks. To be honest, I am even more scared of leaving burning marks... Because I want to keep a clear coat afterwards and because I completely lack experience with heatguns.

    Convince me not to sand my guitar, please

    Hi, This is my first post here and I just want to thank you all for this community that I have been following for a long time. Let me tell you about my dilemma: I bought a gorgeous 81' Washburn Falcon (neck thru construction with a rosewood top) which arrived to me with some damage on the...
