Yeah, so... trying to just fill the finish damage wasn’t working. The more I messed with it, the worse it looked I got it nice and flat, but there were dark blotches from the glue, and white areas where the glue didn’t “wick” under the chipped finish. So, I’m goin’ nuclear on this thing! This is actually stripping WAY easier than the two Squier bodies I heat gunned all the black finish off of, a couple years ago. Both of those scorched REALLY easily, too-almost like I had to heat it up to the point of scorching the wood, just to get the finish off. Ugh. Not a good pic, but whatever this stuff is, it’s THICK. This body isn’t scorching at all, so it SHOULD look OK when it’s done.
