GUITAR HOLES REPAIREDNESSING

Postby CBA » Mon May 23, 2011 10:46 pm

Hi there.

Excuse my thread title.

I was just taking apart my newly acquired Telecaster and I used some rather neanderthalic methods to get it good.

AS I was knocking out ye olde, uh, string things, from the holes, you know? Welp, I knocked one a little harder than I wanted and it did this:

Doesn't look like too big a deal, and sorry for the shitty pic quality, but it's just kinda like a bit of a gouge.

What is usually used in this SITCH to kinda patch something like that up? I plan on sanding the paint down and I think that will get pretty close to eradicating the issue, but what do you put like Bondo in there or something?

THANKS!

What color is it I can't tell.
One fix would be to get car touchup paint of the same color, apply, let dry, sand flush, buff.

It's like a kind of Seafoam Orange.

I'm actually going to totally sand down the WHOLE THING like right down to the woodbone, so like I said, I think that will take care of most of it. Really I think I'm just being a perfectionist here.

After I sand it, I plan on repainting it superwhite (like my race orientation!), so it probably won't even show. You can't really tell from the pic, but it kinda bonked out a bit of wood, there, so but yeah so it's probably not that big of a deal... Anyway it looks like the final paint job on this bitch is almost like a candy-coat shell... but I can't tell if that's an extra layer of wood on there... probably not as it's a Squier Custom II.

Coolz. Well what you can do if it is deeper then you end up needing to sand is to go get some 5 min epoxy, mix it with some of your sanding dust so it is like a paste, apply, let sit overnight and sand flush. It's like bondo but better.
