[2014 Epiphone Casino NA] Headstock (re)finish question


Recommended Posts

Hi there,

Have a potential project upcoming, contemplating a plan of attack.

I'd like to refinish the guitar in clear lacquer. The only portion of the guitar I'd like to keep original would be the headstock face.

I would rather not want to apply lacquer over polyester and I'm unsure if I can safely (carefully) sand the headstock face. I guess I could mask the headstock face but it's detailed work and even then, I'd have a tape line on the edge which I'd rather avoid.

So I'd prefer not to mask but I'm uncertain how the headstock face is constructed/finished from the factory; is it polyester clear over some kind of black plastic? OR black polyester over wood?

Any insight/guidance on others having done this before would be most appreciated.
