Re: fixing a chip on headstock

If its not chipped to the wood, I would just leave it be. I used to freak out whenever I got a chip in my guitar, but learned its usually best to let em' be.
If you you are really set on trying to fix it yourself. Paint pens work allright to seal the wood.

Headstock chips are an inevitable part of owning guitars. Pointless to fix because as as soon as you do, your just going to chip it again. So just get over it and learn to live with it.
