Repairing Paint Chips

I don't know much about guitar paint jobs but is it possible to repair/paint the chipped paint in the edges of my guitar? If so, what is the process, what kind of paint? Thanks

Is it a ding in the paint or a chip in the actual guitar?

The paint is pretty thick. It's a chip out of the paint. the wood is untouched.

Under most circumstances, you DON'T repair them. If your guitar is of any value, then don't. Any repairs will detract even further from the value. The damage is minor and does not affect the sound.

Consider the chips, scratches, and dings as character to your guitar.

That site is freakin' awesome.

And it doesn't sound like TS is whining about anything.... more like just asking a general question.

But the dings, chips, nicks, and what not add character to your axe.

This is ultimate guitar forums not ultimate wall forums. Guitars and walls are totally different in-case you havn't realised yet.

Wooooo lol. This is still going? Was that comment worth the wait?

If you punch a hole through a wall, it becomes a window, If you chip your guitar you've not really changed anything.

I know, this is old, but I just felt that logic had escaped this thread that needed that to be pointed out retrospectively.

I love me a good necrobump, I imagine someone sitting at their computer night after night, pondering their reply carefully, or storing up anger for years and finally, they decide to reply and what they say is... that...?
