help me fix that guitar scratch
unless it's a high dollar guitar, or vintage, my choices wound be:
1) ignore it
2) if I can't ignore it, touch it up with a black sharpie.
To actually do a finish repair you'd need to know what material the factory used, and get a small amount of that.
It's not easy to invisibly repair small spots like that. It takes a fair amount of practice to get it right.
I wrapped a newspaper ’round my head
So I looked like I was deep
If you can match the color, nail polish can do a nice job on small blemishes like that- especially as it's in a place that it won't get a lot of friction.
It's a lot easier to shape/finish nail polish than the original finish will be. BUt...if you look close enough, it will show.
Guitars are going to get dings and scratches eventually, unless you only ever play them in a padded room and wear soft clothing with no buttons, snaps or zippers.
I have a virtually unblemished Schecter C-1+ that I've babied for a long, long time...and then one day fairly recently when I was changing strings, I managed to drop my very sharp wire cutters right point-down on the front of the guitar. Made a lovely divot in the finish, in a pretty conspicuous area. I was *furious* with myself for about 5 minutes - until I realized that it really doesn't change anything. yeah, it might not look brand new anymore (nearly 5 years after I bought it) but it still plays the same.
I'm sitting 5 feet from it in a somewhat dimly lit room right now, and even though I know exactly where it is, I can barely make out the mark.
I guess that's my long way of saying...unless your normal audience is normally sitting 3 feet from you and performing a constant guitar inspection, or unless that's an absolutely irreplaceable Ibanez (that is an Ibanez, right?) then hitting it with a black Sharpie or some nail polish and thinking no more of it is probably your best bet. :)
