Lesson learned: superglue and cypress 

OK, I've taught myself firsthand never to let superglue anywhere near a cypress body.
Darned, and I've always liked doing bindings with superglue.

So now I have a guitar that I've been trying to sand out to 120 grit, and I just can't get beyond some of the stains. Are there any tricks that will remove/soften/blend the superglue stains?

How dark are they? perhaps you can just add a little tint to the finish to help hide them.

That's about what it would take.

I may try to cover it with a darker shellac.
