I want to sand all the paint off my guitar's headstock but leave the paint on the sides. Then stain the headstock to match the natural color of the guitar. Would that work or would it look bad because of the line of paint on each side? I fear it would just look like I scratched off the paint the headstocks face. Let me know what you think

I was wondering if anyone has seen or tried this? Should I get a custom decal made up to look like the natural color of the guitar body or would that work?
if you do it tastefully it should look good

like ninjasnpirates said, nothing can really look bad to everyone unless you "really **** up"
