How do I take off a permanent black marker on a natural satin ukulele without damaging the finish?

If it was mine, I'd test the finish somewhere inconspicuous with alcohol. Unless it's shellac it should be fine. Alcohol should take off the sharpie.

I use the little alcohol wipes in the sealed foil packages that are used in conjunction with injection sites, etc. Works perfectly. Will not damage finish.

Okay. I'll try that. But I already found a solution. I used toothpaste and believe it or not. It worked! Haha. :D

Great...it's an abrasive product, not surprised.

No. It's not an autograph.
