Hi All, Scuff by Clarence001 posted Jan 15, 2020 at 7:26 PM I purchased a used '01 SGjr that I'm in the process of fixing up. The previous owner did a job on the body, it looks like someone tried to hammer the tone pot from the back towards the front and the bodywork broke (surprise!). Not sure if this is what actually happened but the result is a rectangle shaped piece that is cracked on long ends and towards the base of the body, with one small edge hanging on by the volume pot. The cracks go through and are visible on the underside, but it's all been glued. The attached picture shows the damage. I have a few questions... What are repair options for this? Any ideas on costs depending on option? Is there something I can do (hobbyist) or is this something a pro should handle? The guitar plays fine and I'm not super bothered by the damage. My biggest concern is that the crack itself is exposed raw wood, and I feel like it should be sealed. Outside of a full blown body job, is there a smaller option of sealing the crack, and can this be done by me? One thing I was thinking of was something like a pick guard but in the area of the pots. Downside is I'm unsure there are enough threads on the pots for something like that to work. And lastly, I was reading about someone who applied polish to the finish that was exposed due to damage (similar to my guitar) and the polish did further damage in that area. Does anyone have experience with this, and if yes is there an option or workaround? If anyone has any ideas or dealt with stuff like this, please let me know. I'm currently leaning towards doing as little as possible, but I do want to prevent further damage and do right by the guitar. Thanks!
