Talking Huge Paint Problem Please Help

Ok I have a les paul copy my dad painted for me when i was younger and its been about 5 years, and for some reason all of the paint is starting to make weird colors, random chips, or black/blue sticky marks that I had to use goo be gone because they actually stick to your clothes. it was a sunburst he made white for me. Does anyone have any advice or seen anything similar to this? He does not remember what type of paint he used or anything and i haven't put stickers or anything on this guitar before. thanks you. Please help me out. Thank you.

Lots of things could have caused the problem: too thin of a finish coat (which is what it looks like) paint incompatible with the primer, improper curing, heat, cold, humidity, dryness, etc...

but if it were mine, I would simply sand it down and repaint it.

I was thinking maybe I could really careful cut a piece of clear pick guard over where the blue area since it sticks and just do that and keep playing it? What do you guys think?

Whatever makes you happy

But either way that paint job will continue to deteriorate. What would make me happy if it was mine is nothing short of a complete strip and redo.

But to each their own.
