Use a hammer to hit the rest of the guitar to level it out.

I'd never buy an SG. They look schmexy but I don't like how they balance out. It needs more weight in the body or something.

Can't help you.

At least those dings and scratches give the guitar character. People actually pay more for a guitar that has been banged and scratched and sanded to look like shit.

make a sacrifice with a lesser guitar and maybe the god of rock will smile upon you and fix it
or just fap, that fixes all problems


but really, polish it or try to make it seem less noticable, unless you took a giant chunck off of it.

Look after your gear

I'm playing a second hand bass atm ( first bass ) and it's worth $150

It has no dents that i have inflicted upon it.
a little lost.....

Be more careful.
As for removing dents already there, it's not going to happen, but just take more care of it in future.
#10
I know!!
I have on dent from a table and another from the bassist in my band throwing a tuner at my when I was holding my guitar...
At least they still look good!

Everyone seems to think this. I've always thought SGs looked cheap and very 'wannabe', almost like a BC Rich.

Oh well.

Mine too, and it's some Gibson/Baldwin $120 piece of firewood. I'm not careful at all and bang it off things all the time. There aren't any scratches on it at all except for some tiny chips of the headstock.

You think SGs dent easy? Wait til you own an Ibanez RG...

They probably look cheap to you because the 'cheaper than a crack whore' models they make are extremely popular. Just like with some B.C. Rich guitars. If local shops didn't have low quality SGs all over the place, you'd probably think otherwise. It's just the reputation that sinks into you.
#16
Yeah I've read Mahogany dents easy, as for the dent, it's tiny and unnoticeable, but I still hate the fact that I have them, I'd rather have it dented without me knowing so I don't concentrate on the spot every time I play. As for the being careful part, I generally am, but it's those slip ups that get you, even if you've an OCD on being careful. I've also read somewhere that you can "buff" the dents out with steam or something.

i have an rg 1527 and it doesn't have any dents in it, a bit of scratching but no dents, and it's collided with just about every piece of furniture in my house. but htat may just be because it's a higher end model.

mines never been dented, although it's made of swamp ash instead of mahogany so that may have something to do with it. The finish is beat to hell though.

I agree with you, except I actually owned an Epi SG. It was okay, but I sold it to a friend who really wanted it after I bought a new guitar a year and a half ago.
#23
I have two SGs one a semi-cheapo faded and a nice VOS(both are mahogany). the faded sg dents really easy and has real bad buckle rash, probly cuz it doesnt really hav a finish, its just stained. the VOS SG hasnt scratched at all and its got a hard see-thru laquor finish.
Altho mahonany is pretty soft so just be careful with it and dont hit anything

Garage sale guitar, what can you do?
#26
I'm assuming you have the special faded model or whatever... Yeah, those scratch and dent really easily, Gibson even tells you that.

EDIT: disregard this post, i didn't read your sig.
#27
My Jackson is really banged up, the pointy bits have no paint on them now. I take next to no care (apart from the occasional clean) of it now, looks great.
#28
I haven't had any problems with dents, and I'm not too careful. I fucking love my SG


My mind is going. I can feel it.
#29
if the dent on you guitar is not punctured try putting a wet cloth and iron over the dented area, i have never tryed on a guitar yet, if your really desperate to get your dent out you could give it a try.

Yes. The 1527 is part of the RG Prestige line and the body is basswood.
#32
Agreed! I was just polishing my Epiphone SG yesterday, and noticed how many dents it has... I feel your pain.

Unless you have a Gibson, in which case I feel a poor excuse for your pain...

I don't get why people make such a big deal over little dents and scratches, it's not like it has any effect on the instruments functionality.

why are they so easy to dent? simple, Gibson sucks and everything they make sucks and is extremely overrated and overpriced
