Not so much building as repairing. I have a Peavey Rockingham, a hollow body guitar, and a few hours ago the strap come loose and it dropped onto my FX Board. 2 of the dials were embedded into the body, and have left holes in it.

They're around 5x5mm each, where they are they're not noticable and it hasn't affected the sound, but could anyone advise me on how to go about plugging them?

Cheers

Try...I think it's called wood putty? You put it in the hole as a gel-like thing and then it hardens. Haven't had shop in a while, but I think it would work for holes that small.

I'll check it out, I was expecting to have to buy a wood to cut to size or something.

EDIT: So as an idea, if I used a wood putty to fill the hole to around 1/2mm short of the top then applied a light finish to this, would that work ok? Sorry for the noob questions by the way.

I highly recommend that you also PM our Acoustic builders/experts here. CorduroyEW (luthier) and dave293 come to mind. I forgot the others but they might see this and respond.

Good Luck!
