At least that's what I assume is happening. Anyone know how to fix this? I think Rob uses Poly instead of nitro so I don't think I can just use superglue to fill in and then wet sand.

I'm not that anal :lol: I mean, I know I've had it a few years now and the finish is going to have some marks, but it seems a little premature for a guitar that hasn't been gigged or traveled with. I think it's been maybe 5-6 years since I got it? Maybe less.

Any way to colour it black, or should the glue fill in underneath and leave the black paint on top?

Ideally I would take it to a luthier but there isn't one around here.

It should go clear again, so if there's black under there that's not nitro based it should go back to black. Just make sure you're using thin superglue, and go overboard on masking the surrounding area. You'll need to wick it between the fretboard edge and the lifted finish, and thin superglue tries to go everywhere.
