Had to Google, do you drive a torana? Cause that's your demographic!

I'd suggest just playing it. The ink should be far less tough than the actual finish and will fade and wear off.

Yeah that's just like saying if someone spray paints a dick into your car, just drive it and don't care :rofl:

The kid who owned it before me had it 9 years and the signatures were still clear as day despite lots of use, so I will agree to fully disagree... especially when a few buffs with isopropyl alcohol has now 90% solved the prob.

No, I reckon if you had Alan Partridge sprayed on your car, you'd definitely have to have him removed.

I'm surprised a guitar with people's signatures on it is any good, actually. Usually they're just cheap crap.

It's a mid level model with active pickups, bit of a metal player's guitar. actually a pretty decent backup for most heavier applications.

Looking at it on trademe. I think you could safely try and completely remove the marker. If it ended up shining the paint job, I think it would still look really cool, as long as it was uniform over the guitar. It would be a semi gloss type look.
