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.
