hey guys,
i ordered a les paul neck and body for a new project, the only possible problem is that they are both already sanded and sealed with some sort of clearcoat.

so my two part question is: can i stain over the already existing coat?
and what kind of stainer will allow me to do this, then clearcoat with acrylic/nitro/two pack?

any helpful ideas would be much appreciated.

stain works by soaking into the wood so you will have to sand away the sealer.

Whenever I clean my guitars, my family wonders why it smells so good; I say that I exude a fresh citrus scent from hidden orifices.

You will need to sand it off yeah. If the sealer is soaked in enough, you may not be able to get it off. That's what happened to me, so I had to paint my flame maple.

If it is just sanding sealer, you can by tinted lacquers from ReRanch and Stewmac, and spray them on it.
