Hi , I’m looking for any advice on how to remove a heavy white water stain from an all mahogany guitar. The guitar in question is a very nice Martin 50’s vintage 00-17. I assume it has a nitro finish. I’m not a luthier, having only built one guitar plus a few easy repairs, but I made my living as a woodworker so have done a lot of finishing. The goal here would be to remove as much of the white stain as possible while not damaging the finish. This is a heavy stain from someone setting a glass on the guitar (!) not a light haze beneath the finish. It’s been on there a while, not sure exactly how long, but years not days. Thanks for any advice.

Saw your post over at the AGF and gave an answer there.....


You never know what you are capable of until you actually try.
