I kind of messed up a duplicolor metalcast finish and have decided to go with it as a faded relic look rather than have to start over and try again. I applied a waterslide decal and am undecided on if I want to leave it on before clear coating the body. I like it and as well as being unique, within the period look i'm going for it will also be a great way of identifying the guitar if stolen etc. Although I like it I am undecided on whether I want to commit to it and clear over it. What do you think? Leave it on or take it off?
