Lucius Paisley Posted January 9 Report Share Posted January 9 Finished the first step in paint removal tonight and I'm wondering if anybody could tell me what exactly it was I was dealing with here? I read polyurethane, which I don't think this was. As I was applying heat, the top layers would bubble and if I removed the heat source would cool almost instantly. If I kept a lower temperature over those areas, I could happily scrape away. and finally... I mean I guess it's moot now the lacquer(?) is completely off, but I'm sure I can put some other purchasers of this guitar's minds at ease knowing what I was dealing with. My next step is to remove the remaining paint and reveal the natural finish underneath. It's a basswood top and hopefully the rest of it is as light as what has been already revealed. Fingers crossed. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
