I was at our practice space today with my bassist and had my SG lying in it's case with the lid open. My buddy knocked a mic stand over and it put a fingernail size dent between the 7th and 8th frets of my Gibson SG. It seems to play fine, but it looks stupid. Is there any way I can get this fixed?

Typical bassist!

LE shoop? It must be rad. And yes, I see potential.

P.S. nobody google 'man train'.

Its not really worth fixing unless you want to replace the whole fretboard.

agreed, although a cheaper fix may be to mix wood and wood filer mix and paint and sand

no. you dont need a new fretboard. gotta ask, what kind of board is it? a dark rosewood or ebony would be great and easier to fill without it being noticeable.. maple might be a little more obvious, but it also depends on the piece. any local lutheir worth his salt should be able to do it for you, far under the cost of a new board!

It is ebony.

Thanks for the info!

Can't it be steamed out?
Is it more of an indent,or are the individual fibres broken?
