Spectrum GT and permanent marker.... Empty Spectrum GT and permanent marker....

Post by Catalyst Sat Aug 03, 2013 5:25 pm

Hi guys, the previous owner of my GT wrote his postcode on the front of the headstock in permanent black marker, it's hardly noticeable, but I could do with removing it....any ideas as to how I could do this safely without damaging the guitars finish?

Thanks for your help gents - much appreciated.

Meths or cellulose thinners should do it.

WD40 on a cloth or a squirt of fly spray on a cloth will most likely do the trick as well (sounds strange but it does work)

Nope. Nope. And nope.
Simple rubbing alcohol on a cotton swab will dissolve it easily without damaging the finish!
