My poor little Gibson SG.

Recommended Posts

Hello. About 4 months ago i dropped my SG against a cabinet in my house and took a chunk of paint off the neck. For some stupid reason i decided the wooden bit was annoying me, so i masked off the chiped bit and spray painted the area. When i took off the masking tape some more of the real paint came off, and it looks much worse. Anyone know of anyone who could do a proper job of fixing the neck, cos i dont want to wreck my guitar anymore than it is.

cheers.

I would just leave it as is. Guitars get chips/dings etc, in fact some people pay to get this done for them!

My son fell through the top of my USA Ovation last week, cracking it in 3 places....ho-hum!

He did offer to pay for it with this pocket money...bless him;)

On the subject of chipped/worn guitars etc....does anybody else think the 'relic' guitar in Bruce M is the worst example of a relic guitar ever, or is it just me?

Reliced guitars can look good. Some people are very talented at achieving it.

You should check out that forum I listed above Bri, I think you'd appreciate some of the great finishes people achieve.

Yeesh, what kind of masking tape did you use? That stuffs supposed to be weak enough that it wont take off even the cheapest paint...goodness knows how it managed to remove a hardened laquer surface!

Not so much 'reliced' as attacked with a band sander. It's real nice!

Yeah relic'd guitars are cool my gibbos get a fair few scratches and stuff, but i don't think fender and the like do much to "Relic" the neck. Its right over the 2nd - 3rd fret and i need to get it sorted cos it'll start to peel away I reckon. Anyone put anything like this to the guy at captain toms?? Is he any good??
