Hello Club,

Good news: I just got a 1681-WT-HB. Bad news: There is a small ding in the finish.

I would probably go the superglue route on a gloss finish, but this one is satin. Could anyone advise on repair?

Your help is much appreciated.

Leave it alone. Gives the guitar personality. Guitars are meant to be played not kept pristine. I talked with a guy once who's dad gave him a D28 in high school. He could point to every ding and scar and tell a story about his kids, wife or dogs. With pride.....

Just pretend I agreed with everything moody just said and that he didn't post twice again. Maybe he pounds the mouse too hard.
