Hello all. I have been reading up on building a guitar for a while now and TDPRI seemed to have the most info of all the forums I found so even though i am building a strat as my first this seemed like the best place to register and ask my first question. After getting my shop all setup i finally got around to rough cutting and routing my body but when i was almost done i got some tear out on the top cutaway when the router grabbed and almost ripped the body out of my hands. I really don't want to scrap the whole thing so what are my options for fixing this? Im sure I could use some filler on it but I'm not sure what would be best. I was thinking my other option may be to use the router to take off the top 3/4" or so of material and put in a patch then use my pattern bit to follow the other side. Or is there a better option i haven't thought thought of yet.
