guitar care/repair - the varnish seems to have peeled off

Post by purdeaandrei » Mon Jan 29, 2007 9:55 am

Hi! my guitar recently suffered an injury, it seems , that the varnish peeled off, near an edge.
I am afraid that the injury might extend.. :-( What are your recommandations? Is there a way i could treat it?

Hello Andrew,

I moved your message to the Luthiers section as I thought you might get a better response to your question.

I can't see your photograph, by the way. Can you?

Best wishes, V

oops, i don't know what happened, i could see the photo after i wrote the message...
I actually uploaded 2 photos, but i could only see the first one.. (maybe a phpbb bug?)
Now this first one might have been lost doring the movement of this thread?

Sorry if i missed the section, i wasn't sure where to post out of three (public space/luthiers/strings)

I'll try to attach one of the photos again.
(it was jpeg, i scaled it down with gimp)
