    I bought an axl guitar (AXL Badwater Semi-hollowbody) that comes with an awful finish (Badwater) the reason i bought it was because it was on a really low discount price. So rn im trying to refinish it, but i cant decide what to do. from one side i can paint it a solid colour but i kinda like the wood the problem is that i have some weird spots in the wood, i think its burned vinil from sanding. Anyhow i left some pictures so you can see what im talking about, tell me what you think i should do.

    (you can see the damaged wood i talk about on the edges of the cutaways and on the top left edge of the guitar)

    It sure looks like a veneer top that has sanding damage! Is that the case?
