My acoustic guitar has a clear coating on it. I don't know exactly what it is but I was wondering if i draw on it will it stay or just smear off ? Has anyone ever tried this? I don't wanna go out an buy a bunch of colored markers and it just smears off and for some reason i have no damn markers in my house to try it out. Not even a black one. So does anyone know if this would work when there is a clear coating on the guitar or if there are even certain markers that are made for doing this? Also will it effect the sound of the guitar a lot?

TY

Do you want it to act as a sort of dry erase board or do you want it to be permanent?

Why would you want to do that? Anyways it would just smear.


actually that depends on the specific finish and the marker.

I want it to stay on there. Would it be better to just paint some designs on with a paintbrush?

i assume if you use a sharpie it would stay on and not smear if you let it dry for a minute.

if you need to take it off, you can always use isopropyl alcohol or acetone.

I'm assuming you have a gloss finish, so I'd say rough it up just a bit before you write on it with some fine sandpaper, and then draw and don't touch it for a while. I drew on my strat knockoff with a sharpie without it ever rubbing off, but I let it dry for like a week.

Ok thanks. What about just paint? Like cheap paint and a paintbrush. You think that is better than a marker? I pretty much want to make it psychedelic looking. My acoustic just looks too ugly right now and i cant stand it anymore.

^I personally think paintstrokes on a guitar look like sh!t.

but if you can do it right it should be okay. you should probably refin over the whole thing in clear afterwards just in case.
