    Should I be concerned about this nick in the wood? I can’t tell if it was there before or if I did it when adjusting the neck heel. Bottom
    Left hole.

    Your guitar is destroyed. Assemble it & send it to me; I will dispose of it for you, no charge.

    I wouldn't worry about that at all. If I had the chip, I suppose I'd glue it back in, and I'd want to make sure it wasn't still lurking in the pocket, but otherwise, I'd fuggedaboudit.

    I've heard about the recent proliferation of these "hidden chip" necks and all the associated bad karma. I think it's an alien conspiracy. :)

    If you can find the chip glue it back on but don't let it bother you if you can't. It will make no difference other than visual and you cant see that when its screwed back in the pocket.

    Looks like it will still fit flat in the neck pocket.

    Plus the screw threads will still grip past that point.

    That's how Blackmore glued his Strat necks on back in the 70s...

    If the screw threads in with no issues I wouldn't be concerned.

    Besides that......Who's going to see it?
