RG1550 i can't believe what I did :(

A couple of days ago I was reaching to pick up my v-amp2 to start playing, and my guitar fell forwards from its stand, and happened to go *THWACK* into the corner of my PC desk :/
Now there is a slight dent in the fingerboard passed the 3rd fret by the high e. It didn't look to bad up close, and i couldn't feel it so i thought i was ok.
But since i've been carrying on playing it, it looks as though the dent is getting deeper (or maybe its my imagination).

So do you think i should live with it? (don't notice while playing)
or get a new neck/fingerboard? ( i really liked that guys 1550 with the rosewood fingerboard!)

thanks for reading
matt
