Small chip in fretboard of new Ibanez. Just cosmetic, right?
I bought an RGR421EXFM (long ridiculous model number, whew) and the finish on it is beautiful. I'm very happy with the maple pattern on this one, and it seems to play excellent too. I try to give my new guitars a really good look over for any cosmetic or functional problems and at first only noticed a dark knot in the wood on the neck near the heel joint. Didn't really bug me.
So I slacked the strings and conditioned the dry fretboard, adjusted the action lower and tuned it up. I noticed a dull spot in the fretboard between the B and E strings that meets up with the 7th fret. It's a chip in the rosewood in width about the size of the end of a pen cap (a little smaller than a standard dot inlay size), and it is pretty shallow in depth leaving just a little room underneath the fret. So any advice? Should I squeeze a bit of wood glue in that area near the fret and just forget it? I got this guitar for $199 from the MF "stupid deal" thing, good price. But it is brand new.
