jazzman22 Posted August 20, 2006 Report Share Posted August 20, 2006 HELP! I'm working on restoring a tele style guitar for a friend of mine who is a professional musician. She asked to me to refinish her guitar with a red mahogany color stain. I had the stain custom mixed at a local paint shop, sanded the body all the way down to the bare wood, stained it, and was in the process of applying and then sanding/polishing the clear coat (polyurethane) when it looks like the poly started to whiten in one spot. I've seen this happen with varnish, but never poly, so I hit it lightly with some sandpaper and realized it was through to the wood! So I clean sanded that one spot and reapplied the stain, but the spot is now several shades lighter than the rest of the body! I've tried everything I can think of to get it to match and it just won't work. I was hoping to have this guitar ready for her by early september, so this is a bad time for this to happen. Does anyone have ANY suggestions? I'm in a bit of a panic here. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
