I once asked a professional painter what he'd charge to finish a guitar and it was over $300.00 to paint a new unfinished one and over $600.00 to refinish a finished one. The extra $300 was to cover all the time required to properly strip and prep the guitar before even attemnpting to put on a new finish. I suspect your friend's quote was high for a similar reason.
Moving on.....

My first and only guitar is a $350 cheap Ibanez too. Granted it has tons of sentimental value to me, at that price I definitely would just keep it around for nostalgia and upgrade guitars in the mean time.

it has character now, just look at zakk wylde's confederate guitar, it has had the shit beat out of it and has beer caps nailed into it

I suppose "character" is one way of phrasing it.

You need to understand that the reason the guitar is so cheap is because they're mass produced. If you set out to build the same guitar yourself you would easily double the cost.

Assuming that the chip is on the body: to fix it properly they have to take apart the whole guitar so they can work with just the body. Strip all of the paint off, fill in the chip with a good wood filler, sand the whole body and then paint it from scratch trying to match the original died lacquer as close as possible. Then re-assemble the guitar. It's a very lengthy and labour intensive process.

I would locate the wall stud and screw into that, it's even stronger than toggle bolts.
Moving on.....

and properly attach them with toggle bolts


I wouldn't trust them.

If I was putting the wall hanger into anything that needed one of those, I'd rather leave the guitar on the floor....

the shop probably didn't want to be arsed with the job and figured they'd quote a high price so he'd just go away.

Am I the only one who thinks that Zakk Wylde guitar is badass?! If I had an extra guitar I'd stamp all sorts of cool beer stoppers on it too.

if the chip has cracked internally, it's a bitch to fix. It can affect the sound dramatically.

You're not the only one, in fact my favorite Les Paul is the Zakk Wylde bullseye, I want to save up and buy one when i get a job.

To the post above: I agree, look what happened to EVO, Steve Vai's guitar, it keeps constantly going out of tune.
