Help with a scracth on a black guitar. Thank you!

Post by Toruk » April 20th, 2017, 3:54 am

Hi! I just bought my first guitar and it already has a scratch :roll: I was taking off my coat and the keys went off from my pocket hitting the guitar!

I assume the cleft cannot be repaired, but I would like to somehow paint it as the color there is clearer. The guitar is a black Yamaha C40.

I have been unable to find on the Internet which is the specific painture originally used manufacturer. Do you know if this nitrocellulose paint will be valid? It says it is the same as the one used both by Gibson and Fender:

In this link you can find an image of the scratch on my guitar. As you see is not huge, but it's driving me crazy!

It's not going to be nitrocellulose. You'd probably be fine with model-making or car paint

Thank you! And I assume the color is just flat black?

No idea. What I've found in Art is that there are dozens of shades of black
