    If you can’t feel it, I’d say leave it. A relic is only ever going to be a starting point… It’s going to pick up more wear.

    But, if you wanted to disguise it a little, dropfilling with clear or tinted nitro then lightly sanding back is the popular course, although best handled by a pro on a CS instrument due to value and I presume the finish is quite thin and easy to sand through.

    I prefer to leave chips than fix them, personally. I get used to the look of a chip better than the look of a repair.

    If it were mine I’d leave it alone, if you play it regularly it will smooth out in no time and be less noticeable

    I wouldn’t touch it as something you do to fix it may end up making it more visible or a worse mess

    Especially if you ever plan on selling, it’s only original once, I’d rather buy a guitar with a small chip like that than having it altered at all

    Hi.

    So, the question is, on a CS relic Tele, should you repair some small paint damage?

    The fact it’s on the neck is the only thing stopping me from teasing you mercilessly. Since you say it can’t be felt, I’ll restrict myself to moderate teasing, thusly…

    I guess the o.p made his decision, I don’t know why he didn’t keep the original text up

    Also missed “g” in there
