Advice on lacquer discolouration

Hello, Long time lurker, first time poster.

I have just bought a second hand classical guitar, unfortunately the shop I bought it from stuck two round stickers on for the price which have discoloured the lacquer (see picture, if it has attached) I have removed the stickers and cleaned with naphtha but the circles still remain.

does anybody have any suggestions or is it a look I will have to get used to?

Thanks

Andy

You'll probably have to get used to it. My bet would be that the stickers blocked UV light and that the rest of the clear has discolored around it. Was it hanging in a window?

Also, if the discolouration is due to blocked UV it will probably even out in time as the lighter area is now also exposed to UV.

It was in a window although it's back was to the outside but your diagnosis sounds about right oh well at least it was a bargain and it sounds great.

Thanks Levi man.

Yeah just leave it in a sunny spot or something. I prefer lacquer that's tinted anyhow.
