Haha - so true. Never quite got that mentality.
Page 2 and no actual pictures yet?
If it's just a missing chunk. Do a drop fill, sand and be on your way. I recently used this to good effect on an abused used guitar I bought, which I used before. Welcome to relic land where comfort and playing performance are the primary goals.
You need to quit playing it before it gets damaged any worse. I'll go ahead and "hold onto it" for you. Don't worry.
OK guys, here's a shot of the wound. I'm over it now and I'm taking it back out to gigs, but I keep it in the soft case when I'm not playing it. Like I said, it's chipped in a spot that it doesn't interfere with playing. I've been using my RW 50's tele as my #1 at gigs now, so I pick up the '70 when I feel like it.
I don't think I'll repair this, it's part of my long history with that guitar.
Thanks for your comments and suggestions!
B...b....butt....it's a Tele. Give it a week and it will heal itself.
Rosewood dust and superglue and it will be fine.
Now it has some serious mojo!!
Be glad the fret was spared and fix that I say. If you can't, someone here who can will probably advise or if local to you help perhaps.
But, yeah. OUCH!
Get the fret sprout addressed while you are at it as well.
Yep, I'd fill that so I couldn't feel it and then fuggedaboudit.
You mean that you actually PLAY the guitar (and especially the low E) above the 15th fret???
A bit of super glue mixed with sawdust of similar color to the fretboard will fix this in seconds.
True, that is not real estate my hand would ever be near..
i could see why it would annoy you. however, you can get over this by getting it fixed and naming the scar after your drummer
I agree, don't repair it! Just get your drummer to acquire more reliable hardware.
And give you some good booze to say sorry. Like a bottle of 1800, Balvenie 21, etc..
Personally I would get that professionally fixed. For me that hole would be too big and deep to attempt to fix it myself.
Looking at the overall and the body paint round the pocket.. Thst seems like a proper tool/tele for making bread.
Plus 1 on this. It might take a bit of time to build it up, but it should be fixable. Just get a piece of Rosewood and sand it down collecting the dust as you sand. When you have enough, go for it. Be sure to tape off the area so you make sure it only gets on the area you're trying to fix.
Good Luck, Mike
I'd start with a wet rag and a soldering iron.
Might be able to lift out 1/3 to 1/2 of it.
Looks like some wood might be missing, though.
