    I have a 1967 Coronado II that I was able to get relatively cheaply because someone painted some black "textured" paint on the back of the guitar.

    I'm wondering if it's possible to try and remove the black paint only and leave the original paint below. The black paint has chipped off in places and worn through in others so I can see what I think is the original color. I don't want to refinish the back of the guitar, just try to get it down to the original finish, however damaged and beat up that may be.

    I live in Westchester County, NY, right outside of New York City and work on Long Island in Melville. Anybody know if there is anyone out there who would be able to do this? Any thoughts on whether this is possible and if it's worth it?

    Call Michael's music in Freeport and see if they can recommend a qualified luthier .
