I have a Gibson SG (standerd)...and lately I saw small dents on the neck (I mean the backside of the neck not the fretboard)..is that normal?cause my teacher has also a SG and the same story on his guitar?I just wonder why it happends?I clean the guitar and I don't bump it or anything?also I haven't seen this before on other brands of guitars...
I think that is just you having the guitar and slowly noticing more flaws. It happens.
Your thumb is too strong.
Its nothing to fret over if its just little dings, they could be anything, maybe where you have knocked it on something, or maybe when its been put in a stand and it hit abit of the metal?
It's just where your guitar neck knocks against things probably. A couple of my guitars all have little nicks here and there on the neck where i've been a bit careless.
it's not due to the use of a capo is it? i have seen necks with dents on the back due to this.
Depends on what kind of capo, mine has padding so it doesn't do it on mine. I have 2 small dents in my neck, doesn't bother me though.
You broke it
do you set you guitar up against your amp? The same thing happened to my SG, Mahagony dents easily, what wood is your guitar neck made of?
