renabalistic: thanks... um... it looks sort of just pressed in... but out of the two options, I would say that it is probably burned, like they do to cows... (poor girl)

Ultraman: The guitar had already been partially sanded, and hacked with before I bought it... I'm going to try my best to give her the love she deserves

I think I would practice the old "extreme light sanding" in that area just to remove the top finish by hand using a block and some very fine grit paper.

I wouldn't try to take it all off just lighten it up to a point where you can blend in the new finish. You can always refill the indentation with a rag tip dipped in paint and wipe the excess off to bring out the stamp.
