So the other day, I let my friend use my PRS Santana. He was being rough with it and he made me get 2 small dings on it, which pisses me off because it was perfect before that. So how can I make these dings less noticable? Bellow I have pictures of the dings

Agreed, leave it as it is. Dings and scratches add character.

At least now you don't have to worry about making it imperfect. It really won't be worth the hastle or cost and it's going to get dented in the future anyway no matter how hard you try not to.
There's a good chance that what I've written above is useless and if you take any of the advice it's your own fault.

I think Stewmac has a like a little dent fix kit for things like this though.

But the time and effort to sand, fill, cover, sand, clear, sand and polish those two little dents is far far more trouble than it's worth to just live with them. And if you haven't done anything like this before, you stand an excellent chance of making it far worse than what it is now.

So.....Just leave them and move on with life.

However I do feel your angst. You probably treated that guitar with kid gloves. Remember to thank your friend for fuking your guitar then handing it back to you. That's always nice.

get a red sharpie and color them in, thats what guitar shops (at least around here) do to make them less noticeable. I was also told that it prevents the chip from getting bigger, im not sure how true that is.....

I usually just match the paint if it's to the wood. if it's just in the finish I'll leave it alone.

i'd say your best bet as far as getting rid of dings would be to get a hacksaw and just saw off that piece of the guitar

I have a telecaster i play everyday just HOPING to get more dings on it faster... And you are weeping over 2 measly dingies maaaannn....

There's really no real way to have it look perfect again unless you know EXACTLY the paint and finish used on it and get your hands on the guitar to re-finish it...

I think that Fenders attract dings more than a PRS. You never see a thread with someone wanting to do a relic job on a Paul Reed Smith.

Depends, I don't know what pickups go good with plywood. EMGs will make it sound like every other EMG guitar though.
