I painted this guitar 4 or 5 years ago and my dog decided to use it as a chew toy so now I'm going to repaint it. I've used wood filler and bondo on guitars before but never had to fill any 'gaps' this big before. Any advice on what you would do? Thanks.

I think I'll go with the veneer. Never had any experience with it before so it'd be good to be around it. Any advice on where I can get smaller sheets without having to buy a full sheet? Since I won't be needing very much.

you can make it ,just get some quater inch or scrap wood and run it thru a scroll saw.Put up a fence ,clamp it in place,and shave some wood.You do not need much.

If I were to go with epoxy what kind would you suggest?

Any 2 part epoxy. If your gonna be painting it, any will do. I would do a few coats to make sure you get all the shrink out of it first, but it should be simpler and easier then cutting wood peices to glue on, then shape up. Just make sure you use some good sanding sealer.

Would something such as this be ok? Or should I get stuff made more for guitars like the stuff StewMac sells? I'd just rather be able to pick up something locally rather than have to order it if I have that option. Also, anyone know of good grain fillers that are available in common hardware stores? Thanks.http://www.acehardwa...2624942.1303397
