unsane Posted October 19, 2005 Report Share Posted October 19, 2005 hey guys. i recently acquired an 80's MIJ neck through yamaha guitar which someone had refinished using spray cans over the original finish. i've already sanded the body down to the bare wood and its looking much better, there are a couple of problems though. as you can see from the pic,there are some rather obvious lines where the contours are. although the contours are pretty smooth and rounded, it looks as if the top has been flattened off (i hope you get what im trying to say). the lines aren't raised, they're smooth. i already tried sanding it further but to no avail. is there anything i can do to get rid of these lines? i'm intending on doing a transparent stain over the body and it probably wont look very good with the lines. also,the control area on the lower bout appears to be stained in some way,water damage perhaps? is there any way i can get rid of this? lastly,the L shaped line at the lower bout of the guitar is where a piece of the wood broke off and the previous owner epoxied back on (behind it is the jack area,which is cut out of the body). is there any way i could cover this up? thanks for any help in advance..this is my first ever refinishing project and i dont really know much yet...always trying to learn though.
