A cougar took a bite out of it. Just kidding...I found it on google images.
It's only a scratch!
Nobody is looking at the guitar from as close a distance as the picture. Stand back 5 feet and have a look.
It wouldn't bother me.
cheers folks! doesn't feel so bad today.. reckon I'll go with it as is..... there'll be more to come
it looks fantastic.
It's only a flesh wound!
It'll heal... LOL

Meh, it's in the black part. Just color it in with a black Sharpie.
Not Quite Relevant: when we first got together, my wife-to-be built me a new computer with a sleek black case. She added a small bottle of touch-up paint to keep it looking nice. I don't remember what I used the paint on, but it wasn't on any of the nicks and scratches on the case!
I would get it sealed personally I don't like exposed wood. With that said though it's not that bad and if relic is your thing have at it throughout the years of play
set fire to it to scorch it black
Think of it this way, that's not damage, that's MOJO!
Don't worry about it. She'll survive.
You could always darken the wood a little by rubbing your unwashed thumb on it making less obvious against the dark burst. Left unsealed its going to get grubby over time anyway.
A good way to reduce weight of a too heavy guitar
Let the relic process begin!
It'll look better once the wood darkens. Make up a good story about "Should've seen the other guy".
I think the photos provided make it look worse than it is. It's the angle and the close-ness of the photo. I've seen (as all of us have) thousand's of dinged-up guitars and in general something that size isn't bad, besides I think the photo makes it look worse.
That is quite a ding. Where is the rest of the wood?
Sand it down smooth with some fine sand paper,and leave it..
