I knocked my BTB!

I knew it would happen -

Today i very slightly tarnished the finish on my BTB

However, I am hopeful I can do something about it with some assistance - basically, what happened was that the strap caught on the top of a chair, which tipped over nearly tripping me up. I managed (thankfully!) to avoid a topple, I hate to think what would have happened to my guitar if i had fallen! Anyway, the underside, just along from the jack socket, hit fairly lightly into a painted door, leaving a small (1.5mm) whitish mark on the finish.

I do not think this is too severe, holding up to the light does not reveal any missing material or laquer, so im hoping its just a laquer scuff...

in short, is there any way I can polish this out?

Cheers.

If it's not finish cracks then it's probably just a little paint from what it scuffed against. A little polish should remove it in no time.

Thanks, Rich.

I tried polishing it out with spit - no luck. I have some GHS Guitar gloss here (for one of my acoustics, havent used it on the BTB yet...) so I guess i'll give a spot of that a try?

If it's a polish and not just a cleaner/wax. If not go to an auto parts store and get some decent auto polish.

Oh man - that must have gutted you!

I almost chipped mine... had a lesson and the guys room was tiny and a mess (its a room in a music store) and I went to get it outta it's case when the lid fell down on it. I thought it was chipped for sure - but not even a scratch!

Hey, if it goes behind the sofa & has a litter of little BTB's, can I have one? I mean, if they get the looks from their mother, that is... ;-)

Well, I've got no idea what I'm doing wrong.

Probably time to sell my BTB anyway.
