Hopefully someone has some advice for me here :)
I was doing a few touchups on the headstock of my Guitar and I accidentally dropped some acetone
on the last digit of the serial number!!!! I know... I'm an idiot :)
Before I knew it, the indentation of the last digit was melting and soon enough the digit vanished, because
the acetone sort of leveled the finish. The digit is still there as it is stamped into the bare wood before color and finishing so I just need to remove some of the finish in order to make it appear again.
I would rather just soften the finish and just imprint the "4" again, but I want to know if it is possible and what would be the best way.
The photo attached is before I smoothed everything out, so at this moment it's back to the normal mirror finish
but without my last digit
So the number should read 7 3 4, the other two numbers I blacked out to hide
my actual serial number.
Thanks guys, all help will be appreciated
