Is it easy to get it off of a guitar?

I wanted to give my sg special to a store used, for a little extra money, and then buy an agile, but i can't right now because there's permanent marker on the back xD

I was wondering if there was a household item that would be useful for something like this..
Thanks in advance!

Nail polish remover. Though careful not to damage the finish. I'd put a little bit on a ball of cotton, and rub it off. Don't do this in a bathroom, closet, or other closed space, as the fumes can get overwhelming.

I've heard of people using lighter fluid, but i've never tried it myself.

I usually use a white eraser. Those rectangle ones with no writing on it. I got a bunch of peranent marker off of a bass like that but it kinda ruins the gloss on the finish but you may be able to buff it out for all I know. Works though.

No chemical you use will completely spare the finish. I would try the eraser first. If it doesn't work then the nail polish. What kind of an idiot would put marker on a good guitar?

At the music store I go to they take in a lot of used guitars and I've seen someone go so far as to scratch their name into the back of the neck. The bass I traded in was left to the mercy of kids that like drawing on **** luckily the bass was black

Should give the little darlings a hammer and some sandpaper. Nothing like a reliced $2000 guitar.

Hey there before you use nail polish remover try one of those Mr Clean Magic Erasers
I was trying to do the exact same thing and my wife came downstairs heard me cursing like a sailor on shore leave.Once she saw what the fuss was about she ran to the closet and brought me back one of those.To my surprise it worked like a charm.I didnot even have to wet it just rubbed it on the guitar with very little pressure and voila like it never even happened.So far I have not seen any adverse reactions on the finnish and its been about 2 weeks now.
YA GOTTA HIT IT ON THE ONE

I think if you write over it with a dry erase marker, it should come right off if you wipe it.

If all else fails! get one of those white board markers, the ones which rub off witha duster or cloth...write over the bits with perma marker and rub it off with a wee bit of force it should come off without getting eraser dust into any crevaces =P
