I just chipped my guitar on the headstock, and I'm feeling terrible about it i saved up for months to afford it, and now it has a rather large chunk of paint missing and i just feel bad picking it up now is there any way of fixing it if i find where the chip went?

Not that I can think of. I did that as well to my best guitar, but now I like it tbh. Then again, I'm the kind of guy who would buy a relic'd axe.

Really the best you can do is cover it with something I guess.

I've banged a shit load of guitars around and never chipped one of them, wierd eh?

Well, you could always glue the paint chip back on, but it'd still look terrible. I mean, short of stripping all the paint and repainting the whole headstock, you really can't do much. I sucks I know. (I got several of those type of chips on my axe's body; they're so ugly, man.) But ya can't do much. Sorry, man.

My mate glued a chip that he knocked off his guitar back on with wood glue, not noticable unless your told its there, but really, chipsd otn bother me. I like my guitar to look used and loved. I dont plan on selling of them, so it doesnt matter to me.

don't put a sticker on your guitar, you'll regret it inna few years.

It makes your guitar more your own. You should see the bottom of my strat, it's destroyed. it looks cool. makes you look like a seasoned guitarist.

oh crap man it sucks when that happens, but I guess the first chip is the worst to get over, anymore after that and you think "Oh sod it!!" LOL!! Then again I would probably cry if I chipped my F1 hehehe!!

How about getting some wood filler? It's just off the headstock, so it's not AS noticeable as if it were on... say... the body.

This actually happened to my guitar a while ago. I took it to Sam Ash, they filled it in with epoxy or something, and its pretty much gone. All that's left is a witness line that I could probably buff out if I had the time.
Try it out.

+1 to all saying it gives the axe character.

You can get it fixed, but I reckon chips give the guitar character. I freaked out when I chipped my Explorer at first, but before long I realised it didn't really matter, seeing as it was on the headstock and didn't actually damage the wood.
