FDP Forum / Fender Guitars: Telecasters / FENDER ROSEWOOD NECK / SLIVER INTO MY THUMB



Feb 2nd, 2018 04:22 PM   Edit   Profile  

Hi.... purchased a Fender telecaster with a rosewood neck ...year and a half later received a big sliver on my thumb when I was sliding my hand up the neck towards the head stock position. WOW ... felt a sharp pain in my thumb ...and behold a sliver about 1/4 of an inch was embedded in my thumb.Never expected that... phoned Fender customer service and all they had to say was that it was out of the warranty period and I would have to take it the nearest Fender repair shop to have it taken care of. That sting was worse then the sliver...like driving a stake into my Fender soul. So I took it into the repair shop and $65 later it was repaired / with crazy glue . Can you believe !!! Well I may pursue this further... any suggestions as my pride has been pierced and I need some redemption .

Actually, a CA drop fill, followed by scraping level and buffing smooth, is the best fix for this. It's also the best fix for chips and dings in a rosewood fingerboard.

Done correctly, a CA drop fill is just about invisible; you have to look hard to see it.

Was it done sloppily?

Sorry about the splinter in your left-hand hammer detector.

Stuff happens.. Sorry about what happened but this kind of thing would just motivate me to make it perfect. All kinds of resources these days to help you fix things yourself.

You can buy the CA glue at hobby lobby and they have all sorts of applicators, etc... There ain't nuthin like a tele.

Sorry for your injury, but it sounds like wood being wood.

Yes....I understand and appreciate all responses. Just was hoping Fender would come through for me as I have had other Teles with rosewood necks but non of them have bitten me yet. Good thing I wasn't on a gig this time as the pain was instant.
Guess I'll just have to carry band aids with me and tweezers .... just in case! I'll toss them in my back with the extra strings and picks.

From the "neck" or the "fingerboard" ?
