  1. Hi,

    I recently let my cousin play my stingray. However, he had some writing on his palm, and the ink sort of rubbed of onto my maple neck. I didn't realize this until a day later, and now i'm having difficulty getting it off. Is there anything you guys would recommend to getting ink from a regular pen off a neck (unfinished maple, if it matters) Thx.
     
  2. I would dampen a cloth in some water with a little soap. see if that does it. you could try a wood polish or wood stain remover. something else that works is to put a little mayo on there and let it soak in for a while and then rub it off. and lasty get some very high grit sand paper litke 400 or 600 and rub on it lightly with that.
