you could either-
A-leave it as a battle scar,
or
B-Refinish it.

Personally I'd leave it, since refinishing it takes forever xD
EDIT-Nice guitar btw =D

Just leave it like that. After a few years it will have battle scars and you can tell a story about each of them.

...white out?

I don't know it's nothing severe. and how on earth id you hit your guitar there?

I'd leave it. Not only is it a bitch to repaint chips like that without it looking dumb, but its not worth the money - and noone actually cares.

Leave it, and when people ask you about it, make up an incredibly ridiculous story that makes you look like a rock god.
I can honestly say I have really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like.


I don't always post on UG, but when I do, I post in the Pit. Stay thirsty my friends.

My guess was that it was leaned against something and fell sideways.

If it was during-play then his straplock mustve come loose or the strap come un-attached and the guitar fallen down and flipped while falling.

Either that or he's an alien in an upside down world.

Sorry to hear that dude. The chip must be pretty painful right now, but that will pass. I say, leave it. No repair job will look nearly as genuine as the chip itself.

On the plus side it's at least white. When touching in dings I usually go for car paint pen kits that's available from places like Halfords (triple packed with primer, paint and lacquer). It works reasonably well but on a ding that size it's never going to be an invisible repair.

Hth.

Hey calm down there cujo... People are asking because they want more specifics much like my post asking how it happened was it some kind of crazy arial move because that is a weird spot to chip a guitar. So maybe take your own advice and read the whole thread not just what you want to read....

I usually say battle scars look good, but not on shred guitars...they're too flashy to be blemished imo. Leave it unless you're gonna get it fixed professionally.

flickr you might
