Vanished lacquer on mable board

I have just cleaned this maple board which was almost completely black before the work. This white spot between the 3rd and the 4th fret is the only defect now on the board.
Anyone have an idea to easy fix it so it looks good again?

Re: Vanished lacquer on mable board

why not go for the "road worn" look and leave it like that?
Or wait until there are spots like that everywhere?

Re: Vanished lacquer on mable board

Hehe well hmm no. Actually this guitar was heading to that "road worn" look.
I'm fixing as much as possible now because it's going for sale. Everything else on the guitar is now perfect except this spot, so it needs to disappear.

What kind of clearcote should I use? Anyone?

Just use thin CA. Fast and will blend fairly well.

Your absolutely correct, but standard brand "super glue" is too thick to do the job.

There are many places on the web to buy fast setting, wicking (very thin, water like) Cyanoacrelate. I think Stewmac sells it.........

yup, they do.

Re: Vanished lacquer on mable board

Thanks for the responses guys. I will see what I can find here in Sweden. I don't have the patience to order anything from the states at the moment. If I only find a thicker clearcote or super glue I can always use a thinner to thin it out (a mild thinner that not will destroy the clearcote)
