repairing small varnish chips?

Is it possible to fix small dings in the finish of a guitar, in this case a clearish varnish coat in an RG prestige?

Yes it's possible.. but it's more work than it's actually worth sometimes. You can use a small bottle of clear urethane that's used to touch up automotive dings, but you may have to level, sand and buff to a shine to get it from not being so obbious.

Oh yeah.. Canadian Tire sells the stuff if you're wondering where you can get it from.
