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...

i talked this over with my refinisher. he will take great care to fill and level it and it should remain invisible forever.
Best news I've heard so far today (but the day is young).

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 ::)

I'm sure you aren't thinking about selling the guitar anytime soon, but in the event you do have to sell, black will be a lot easier to sell than a metal flake.

good choice!
