Vintage Mustang Finish and Repair
I purchased a 65 Fender Mustang, Olympic White. The seller packed bubble wrap
around the guitar in the case to prevent the guitar from sliding around. The
guitar finish now has the impression of all those little bubbles in it. It
is only noticeable when viewed from the right angle, but is not desireable.
Can this be remedied by buffing with something.
Ricks Answer to - Vintage Mustang Finish and Repair
What are your thoughts on this.
Buffing it is the best possible hope it has, but if the bubble wrap has
silicone in it then it may not come out. It depends on the type finish
chemistry involved in the finish.
It sounds to me like the bubble wrap tried to chemically burn into the finish.
Sometimes the wrong plastics will have chemical reactions to other materials
such as in the finish on your guitar. I think it would be best if you take the
guiatr to a repairman and ask him to buff it out for you to remove this.
The big question here is did the chemical burn in deep enough that buffing can't
go the needed depth to get it all out? The longer time the bubble wrap
stayed in contact with the guitar finish, the deeper it burned into it.
Sometimes the only way to do it is remove the finish back to the wood and
refinsih the guitar. Hopefully it is not damaged very deep so the buffing
process can get below the damge level yet still leave plenty of finish on
