    Hi all,

    I have recently bought a second hand Fender precision light, which has some blemishes in the body finish. The marks are like small bubbles in the final coating.
    Does anyone know how I might be able to repair these without stripping and re-finishing the whole body?

    if its just what is called "fisheyes" small spots in the clear coat were there was an impurity, alot of times you can take some 1500-2000 grit wet sand paper and get it out, just make sure not to burn threw the clear coat, then just buff it out with some polishing compound ( not wax )
