Hey! Ok so i already watched some videos on youtube about how to sand or change the color of a guitar body. I also posted on facebook but all i got is: "no, don't do it, it's fine like it is" or "if you don't know how ask your luthier". So let me be clear, if i post here that's for having help on how to do this in my particular case. I know a strat is common but it's a blonde color and we can see the wood grain already under and i like it so i may just have to sand and some finish? Can i leave it natural without a finish? How can i make it look like a natural wood without the "blonde" effect? I'm really not a luthier, i'm used to setup my guitars and i'm good at soldering if i need to remove all the parts but i'm really not sure how i should proceed so that i get the best results on this guitar. Also i don't mind taking up to 1 year to do this, but i want to do it myself and i want it to be well done. I have a friend who just used sandpaper on his flying v white, then he painted it, it's cool but it's not perfect. I thought my case would be simpler as i don't have to repaint it, i really like the "natural" look. It looks more blonde than it is in real life but i'm sure you all know how blonde guitar from fender are. Here's a picture of my guitar first and then how i would like it to be when finished. Thanks a lot i really appreciate all your help.
