if I did sparkle it would probably be silver sparkle, heavily yellowed to ginger ale.

but i woke up this morning really, really, really leaning toward black.

So what kind of assurances do you have that the terrible inlay won't foil this Nitro job like it did the last one? Something thicker (coughbumpyflakecough) may be better for burying it forever.
This is an excellent rectangle

i talked this over with my refinisher. he will take great care to fill and level it and it should remain invisible forever.

Have you checked to see if the original finish is underneath the inlay? Hell, the whole guitar might be an inlay. Might want to do some more sanding...

Just spray paint it white and call it a day.

Definitely do this.

Although future me has a good feeling that the original sunburst is still under that spray painted white finish, so I say strip the future paint job!

8) Always classy, especially on a strat, and there are already far too many strat colors around ::)

totally. If I ever change my mind, it's not like I'd be losing anything original by just doing something else.
