I would continue using that guitar of course, and I want the writing to stay on the body. What kind of pen should I use? Never done it before... The finish is very smooth and shiny, I'm afraid that it'll be blurred from the slightest touch...

The guitar surface is lacquered ?!? In that case any waterproof marker pen will do the job . Just select the thickness of the marker, and a couple of times you should try it on a similar surface.

edit: After signing, wait a few minutes and that's it smile.gif

If it's not too late, what did you mean to sign? I mean, the top is beautiful, maybe it's a pity to spoil it with something that you could regret later ! After all , you can clean it anytime with a mild detergent and damp cloth or sponge.

PS: And please, don't blame me if something goes wrong! biggrin.gif
