Repairing A Knock

Recommended Posts


One of my sons knocked my TW55 (Blue) and caused a nick in the top about 3/8 inch long. It has not effected the sound of the guitar but I cringe every time I look at it.I was wondering if anybody can give me advice on fixing this. I wondered if I dripped poly into the mark then rubbed it out with G3 would this work, and then continued with the whole top as it has a few light marks anyway. I am assuming that this is poly finished. The depth is about 1/16th inch, and the poly is slightly cracked for a very small area around the nick. It is a nick, through to the wood, not a dent with the finish still intact

Is it possible to produce an invisible repair or will it look worse?
