First off, I know this thread will derail so let's open with the question. How would you get felt tip off a rosewood fretboard? And because that question will get more questions than answers here's the full story. Ok so let's start off with I know kids will be kids and they haven't learnt all the life lessons required to understand the value of other peoples property, action and consequence and that they shouldn't do what they know they shouldn't do. Although the last point seems simple, I'm still surprised by how I long it takes for some people to learn it, if at all. Anyway, I have recently moved to a new house and had a lot of help from my girlfriend's parents, who were also looking after their grandson (girlfriends nephew) that day. We were all busy packing and moving stuff into the van so the grandson was left with some felt pens and a colouring book in the living room. He's 5 and in any other situation would be trusted to be good but my very nice Epiphone Riviera was sat on its stand where it always is. Curiosity/mischief must have got the better of him and he marked my guitar in several places, on the body, pickguard, pickup covers and the unfinished rosewood fretboard! They're only small marks and I know this is mainly my fault for leaving a guitar out unattended around a kid but obviously the move had us all distracted. I didn't notice any marks on the guitar until I unpacked a couple of days after the move but didn't sweat the small stuff and just wiped it off with a bit of spit and a rag after all I only noticed the bits on the glossy surfaces. Last night I noticed that there are 4 other marks on the fretboard, one is just past the furthest right fret the other is between the two frets on the left and they're all between where I spread the strings. The two other marks are elsewhere on the fretboard. I don't want a discussion about liability or any of that, I shouldn't have left the guitar unattended but the kid can still learn from this. Since this is my girlfriend's family she should decide if its best to approach her Sister (mother of the child) about this. Who I believe can use this as a lesson that its not okay to touch/mark/damage other peoples things and that even though 2 weeks have past it still doesn't mean that what they've done doesn't matter now. With that part of the discussion covered with no further discussion desired I ask. How would you get felt tip off a rosewood fretboard?
