First, no. I don't want a relic. I know things happen and I may have to live with it as it all "comes with the territory. I asked a couple people via PM, but for the general population here at S-T... It was bound to happen sooner or later.. well considering I got the guitar in 2012, it seems a bit later. The other day I had time to take out some effects and plug in a guitar, the white Jaguar. For the past couple of weeks, this has been the one on the stand in the living room. At night, I lay it on the couch to keep the dog off the cushions. So I am not sure how or who or what, but I saw a mark on the back of the guitar, about 2" long. I thought it was a thread/string from a blanket, nope. A nice scratch that goes through to the primer surface. Imagine if you had a jewelers screwdriver and just gouged the finish off, something like that. Now usually I don't get too upset about these things, hey.. they are bound to happen. I was in high school when I placed my SQ strat on the floor and the corner of my Morley gouged into the wood of the edge of the horn. ugh! I tried taking a pic of the Jaguar, but it was washed out and you know I hate taking pics. I was just wondering how I should go about possibly touching it up. I was thinking of taking it to the auto paint store and getting a rattle can made up then I could mask it off, hit that area and lightly buff it. I don't know. A few mentioned it may not blend and I would need blend it all.. kind of a bit much for this and what I am capable of at this time. If it were a nick along the edge or a thumbnail, something small, oh well. This is just about dead center in the middle of the back of the guitar and pretty sizable. I get off work in a couple hours. If I get a chance, I'll try and get a clean picture.
