removal of capo marks on the neck

Recommended Posts

Can this be done without a luthier? If so, how? Thought about wood glue which dries clear. Thereafter it might be difficult to stain and or refinish, no? Also though of light sanding, but then restaining to match might be a problem. Thoughts? Thanks, Wally

I would not monkey with it!.....Even a pro would charge you and would be considered a refinish which if vintage would devalue worse than the t capo marks.

No offense but the ideas you've put forward would not help your problem they would make it worse.

 

Do you mean capo marks on the back of the neck? If yes you might be able to steam them out or have someone steam them out for you.

 

Unless it's a beater maybe take it to a shop? Or get set up to do some learning for a bit - good luck!

 

Again - don't sand the back and don't use wood glue.
