Question Fixing a chip

I don't mind a few nicks and even small cracks on an old guitar. It gives it true character. However, big ones like this are a significant distraction. How would you suggest I fix it? Is there some way to do it without doing a total refinish? I love the antiqued creaminess of this old girl.

If it was mine it would be filler, shape, smoothed, undercoat the lot, complete respray, clear coat, cut and polish.

IE, a complete refinish

That's not a chip, that's a big gouge

It was like that when I got it. And stripped of anything that could be unbolted, with the fret board peeling off.

Leave it, you ain't going to fix it without a respray.
