Chip in RG8570Z finish :(

Hey everyone,

I got put on some new medication that has a side effect of brain zaps and when I went to go put my guitar back on the stand I got one and dinged the back on the corner of my desk of course I feel like such an idiot. I got it used so it already had a few small chips and dings but the one I just made is 9mm x 6mm and right through to the wood. Its the black onyx and Im worrying abotu what I hsould do to try and fix it. Should I try ColorTone Liquid Stains | stewmac.com in tobacco brown and then try the super glue StewMac Tinted Super Glue | stewmac.com ?

Not really sure what the best move is. If it were a cheaper guitar, where you wouldn't really be stressed about potentially messing more up on it I'd say go for it. However, with this, I'd suggest just leaving it.

If any part of the edge looks like it's raised you could wick a little super glue [good hobby store type] under it to make sure it doesn't catch and flake off. Carefully of course, and don't glue yourself to it.
