Ironically, tragically, while they may scratch your itch, you sometimes get a rash.

A bit rash, don't you think?

So, BBG - where does this project stand? Did the patient survive?
Or did you subscribe to Hippocrate's caution - "First, do no harm." ?

I changed the tuners on the martin instead 😄

Still thinking about the scratch

Although I shouldn't have asked anyone , just used whatever was in the garage and if it made a mess I could plead that I didn't touch it and people would just put t down to gibsons being dodgy

Do you have a taxidermy studio in your garage as well?
I wanted to install electronic knobs on the upper bout of the old J45 I won in a poker game, but the only thing I had in my garage was one of those things you attach to a drill to cut a hole in a door for a door knob.
I couldn't find a set of controls with a round panel. I guess I should have remembered the square peg round hole warning my mother gave me when she kicked me out.
So I plugged the piece of mahogany back in and sold the guitar to some guy who knows a luthier named Sandy who is also a taxidermist like you.

It began to slide when you attacked my spelling. Hell of it is, I can't recall my thinking at the time - so perhaps the ravages of the 1970's are taking their toll? A smarta$$ needs a fully functioning memory. However, I see new vistas unfolding for later interactions in the realm of buying/selling instruments...

Seller: My price is firm
Buyer: Are you a taxidermist?
Seller: No. Why do you ask?
Buyer: Because you can stuff your damn guitar!

Gotta admit, though, if we didn't enjoy it here there'd be something wrong with us☺

It's still there em7

Those stewmac things look a bit scary


Would've been fixed ages ago until i asked all you lot and got scared

If I'd listened to most of the replies about a saddle I'd never have sanded on down
If I'd listened to most of the replies about changing tuning pegs , same thing

But have to admit , this scratch scares me
Won't be beat and I'll be the guy to fix it / mess it up

If I do either , I'll tell all here

Doing Nitro drop fills on my 2016 J-45 Custom today and came across this thread. How did this repair come out? It looks like that scratch is only in the top clear coat. A very carefully applied thin coat of clear nitro with a very tiny brush would be my approach. Make sure it is enough to be slightly raised above the surrounding finish. The hardest part is leveling this. If the level is not perfectly flat with the surrounding finish you will have the area filled but a very visible distortion in the final buffed out surface reflection will show. In some case this is acceptable, but on the front of a guitar it will stick out like sore thumb.

I tried to scare BBG away from all this in post #27.

Good news is that he hasn't done anything yet!
