I recently bought a Gibson SG and it has a slight paint indent, it doesn't bother me but wondered if it's a simple repair?



I found some Nitrocellulose Lacquer Guitar Paint that sounds like the ticket but I am not sure hence why I am asking for help!

If it’s a new guitar send it back. If it’s a used guitar then fuçk it, that’s probably not the first and it won’t be the last.

to fix it, it will take you a while you need nitro paint and clear-coat besides the sanding, wet-sanding and buffing to make it look right.

www.reranch.com is where I'd buy If I were you

Personally I'd leave it alone

That's a soldering iron burn if ever I saw one. Doubt it would happen at the factory.

I'd just leave it if it's a used instrument, but a decent repair person should be able to fix it nicely. Black is the easiest paint to touch up since you don't have to color match.

My thoughts exactly. Probably more work than its worth dealing with. Keep the guitar and enjoy it, they can get dinged up fast.

That was my first thought as well -- soldering iron burn.

I'd probably do a drop fill technique using black superglue (available from StewMac).
