I'm a bit sick over this. I fupped duck. <br /> <br /> I put together another Tele last weekend for my personal use. While mounting the pickguard I became distracted by the dogs and dropped my screwdriver! Dang! Totally my fault. It landed on the neck point down just behind the 21st fret about B string position an took out a chip of finish. A little circle about 5/32" in diameter. <br /> <br /> The neck is a brand new genuine Fender MIM 50s reissue with vintage tint lacquer finish. <br /> <br /> Is it possible to tint CA glue for a drop fill? Should another product be used?

Thanks for the link. Time for a new SteMac order.

If it's lacquer then super glue isn't what you wanna use as it'll muck up the surrounding finish. <br /> <br /> Drop fill repairs for lacquer chip-outs are a snap. I'd have to send out for a repair like yours though as my color blindness would likely betray me when attempting a color match.

I thought I was the only one who ever did such a thing ... brand new warmoth vintage modern with vintage gloss finish ... about the same damn location. No hidin' that one.<br /> <br /> Phil Jacoby got it hidden for me when I sent him the guitar for a fret level after the build.<br /> <br /> These days I keep a pile of clean rags on or near my bench and cover the guitar with them almost no matter what I'm doing to it...
