I recently bought a used Custom that has a cloudy finish in the strap button area and on the back around the trem cavity. I'm guessing it's from sweat but I don't really know. Anyway I'm trying to find a way of getting rid of it. Can it be buffed out? How about leeching with alcohol. Help?
Sounds like the clear coat lifted...typically happens from an impact unless you are just talking about hazing from use such as the rubbing that can occur from taking a strap on or off....or another example would be pick haze.

Yeah, no easy answer there. Refinish or live with it.
It doesn't hurt the guitar.
I'll try to get some pics posted.
