you could try heating it off and with an exacto knife but your still probably going to chip the wood.

i think hydrogen peroxide on a Q-tip (cotton swab) will work...
not the strong peroxide for dying hair, the one for cuts

Get a putty knife, and keep scratching it until it comes off. It wont hurt your finish one bit.

Would that actually be a good idea, there might be a chemical reaction between three of the things involved super glue remover, super glue and the finish. It could end up doing more harm than good, that might be a last resort.

There's nothing good to remove super glues, unless im missing something. You could try organic (or unorganic...) compound 1st that'd be less damaging, like your spit (brush your teeth 1st). If the glue has hardened properly, then you could just buff/polish it lightly at the area and continue on with the whole guitar.

Where on the guitar is the super glue? How much super glue? What is the finish that it is on?. First you say guitar wood then you mention paint. Is it on clear finish(laquer,urethane)? I could probably help but not without the info.

i got super glue on it cause when i opened up a tube to glue a wood shelf back together, it shot out and got on my guitar on the clear finish. Will heating it up damage the paint?

I can't stop laughing. "Removing super glue on guitar: How do I get super glue off my guitar without damaging the paint job?"

Ohhh man, this is the kind of question people love to hear.

I'd be leery of using a solvent in case of damage to the finish, but I'd try a razor. If that doesn't work, talk to your local luthier, but don't get mad if he chuckles.
no

take an exacto knife, and carfully scratch the glue off, millimeeter by millimeter, and then when it gets too then that you think that you might scratch your finsih, then get rubbing alcohol and rub it of with a q-tip, make sure to put alot of pressure on it. If it doesnt come off, then try to peal it off... The Alcohol should waeken it enough to just peal right off.

Alcohol, Hydrogen peroxide, and mineral spirits are NOT likely going to budge super glue. Super glue remover isn't much more than an acetone based solvent. Acetone is about the only solvent that DOES have an effect on super glue(not quickly either but it does soften it). Yes, it may start to disolve the finish as well. It also my not. It depends what the clear finish is. The best thing to try is a q-tip with Acetone (fingernail polish remover) in an inconspicuous spot and see if it has an effect. If you end up with a flat finish from solvent, a fine cut rubbing compound (an automotive paint expert guy can recomend something here) can bring just about anything back to a high luster. Also, a hair dryer and your finger nail may work to a degree.

I have had great results getting finish blemishes on auto/cycle paint jobs with rubbing compounds and elbow grease. Wet sanding with superfine paper then compounds does wonders as well. Easy too.
