    I'm thinking about buying a 51 Custom Shop Relic and it has nitro burn on the headstock where it was hung not a huge deal since it is reliced wondering if this could just be sanded off?

    Nobody else answered? Come on, guys!

    Nitro lacquer is actually easy to repair. The normal technique is to sand the area lightly (usually 400 grit) to get rid of the black spots. Then spray or brush some nitro lacquer on. Let it cure, level sand, buff out. It should be an invisible repair.
