This was a refinish/repair a shop did. It got new binding and these stains appeared. The plan was to blend them in with a pale amber burst. However, they are more red than amber.

So, my question is, can these be bleached out, without making a mess I won't want to fix? Or, can't fix.

You might use a thin mixture of a green toner to cancel the reddish hue. Bleach probably would create more problems, if the body isn't stripped.

It is bare wood. I am afraid that bleach might cause problems with the wood or binding.

TSP usually works and should not affect the ABS binding. Try under fingerboard area first. Is the stains glue or from oil?

He said it was from the glue. It looks like the glue pulled some color out of the rosewood and bled it into the top wood. It has a rosy tone.

I'll try a bit of TSP then.

Did the stain leach into the wood, or is it just near the surface? You might be able to scrape it off with a single edge razor blade.
