I'd just build a new body. Lesson learned one time mistake
I mix fine sawdust with Titebond to make wood filler
that upper rout is supposed to be 1 ⅛ deep. not 1 3/8ths as are the others... ( I've seen others do the same thing..) I'd just pour a layer of epoxy in it... and let it ride...
epoxy. Just fill the corner with small amount of epoxy and you're done. And then accept that this one won't have a natural finish. No big deal. Don't try putting any wood in there without first using epoxy. You need to be positive that all air voids are filled or you're going to have more problems trying to blend the curve from the outside. No big deal.
I'd fix that from the inside with a little resin and tape to hold it in place, allowing some to go through the boo-boo and then (carefully) sand it smooth. Using a darker finish treatment, particularly on the back of the guitar will totally hide this, not that most folks would ever notice. Only you will know it's there, honestly.
I glued in this piece of cherry, because I was cutting a cherry Bass VI and that was the easiest option. Now I have a lovely cherry spec at the back of my poplar body
Even though this will be a solid color I wouldn't have a problem doing a transparent finish.
That actually looks like a "natural feature". Good fix!
