Guys please i need your help im not sure if this thread is already posted :)

I bought this guitar 9 months ago and it's RG520D WH, here in my country it's kinda expensive around $600 if im not mistaken to my conversion. anyways i have this problem about it. because of its finish glossy white i found out a black stain i can't get rid of, before i bought it there was never any stains of it just pure clean white and time after time some parts of it are starting to grow some stains i don't even know where it came from? it started to grow 3 months ago

any ideas? what sort of my problem do i have?, someone says it's imperfection of paint but if that is the case, i believe from the start it should have stains.
but there is nothing, and btw i bought it from registered ibanez distributor audiophile so it is not fake.

i wish the solution is not repainting the guitar cause it is perfect for me but i want to save my gear please help

and if there's any problem with my thread pardon me again

are you keeping it in a case with black lining? It might be from that. Only thin I can think of.

It could be that the finish wasn't totally cured in that spot for whatever reason and after sitting in the case after you bought it ( it might not ship from the factory in a case) the dye from the case lining has soaked into it??. I remember at a gig once I spilled some beer or got some snow or something wet in my guitar case that had a blue lining. The next day when I took my guitar out, I saw there was blue marks on the back of the neck. I did manage to buff it out with steel wool, but it was a non painted neck. If I were you I would get some swirl remover that people use on car paint and see if that will take it out.

I agree with G-Mag,

that looks like case/gig bag staining. The first thing I would try would be to clean it with a good automotive wax/cleaner. If that doesn't work move on to denatured alcohol (mentholated alcohol?). The alcohol WILL NOT harm your finish or the binding. If the staining still will not come out- it's time for some more drastic measures (cut and buff?)
