Dent in neck

Hi,

Wednesday during bandrehearsal my guitar fell and now there is a dent on the neck around the second fret.

Someone told me it doesn't matter but today somebody told me it could get worse and that the neck should be replaced...

Can someone give me advice and tell me what I should do?

As the first guy said, it doesn't matter.

If it really bothers you, you could put some drops of very thin superglue in there just to stop the paint from flaking off, but it's really not that necessary.

I’ve played lots of old guitars with chunks missing from the necks. They’re fine.

me to. that is just finish blemish so it should affect teh actual neck anyways. unless the damage goes into the actual wood then not a biggie. may feel a little weird there when playing but you'll get used to it and evenyaully ignore it.

You need to find some different someones to talk to.

I would steam it as flat as possible, with a clothes iron and damp cloth, then use supeglue to stop it flaking. If the feel bothered me, I would drop fill it with superglue and level it.

Doesn't really matter. Proper thing to do would be to sand the neck down, fill it and refinish, but only if it bothered you.

That looks to be cosmetic damage only. Most people would be upset for that reason, but would learn to accept it as part of wear and tear.

If it really bothers you - I have not tried this myself - the StewMac bulletins have shown that flakes of lacquer (assuming your is a lacquer finish) can be dissolved in to the existing finish using lacquer thinner. After that it can be sanded flat and re-polished. Some of their examples look like new.
