    Yeah, you could probably buff it out, but why don't ya just play it some more so you can get some more scratches?

    Is it a scuff or is it actually a dent in the wood? If it's a dent, you can't do much I'm sorry to say.

    As far as I can tell Its just a scratch in the lacquer that doesnt go down to the wood.

    In the photo it appears that the wood has also been dented. It may just be the glare but you have to realize that if it's lacquer, it'll be pretty thin.

    Get some Meguiars swirl remover and try to buff it out. If that doesn't work, just leave it and consider it a battle scar!

    Cherish it, make more, and put some scuffs and dents in for good measure.

    It needs the love!

    If that's the only imperfection on your guitar, consider yourself lucky. Just ignore it, and if you don't mind my advice, don't be so obsessive about it. Guitars that get played eventually get bumps, scrapes, dents and scratches. It's no big deal, and if it is that big a deal to you, nothing anybody can say will change your mind.

    Sounds like you should play it right away then! You can buff it out, but I’m pretty sure another one will happen pretty quickly afterwords. Check out YouTube though, it’s a wealth of info.

    I'm always a little relieved to get past that first scratch. It hurts a little for awhile, but then you never have to worry about that one again. She will earn the badges.

    Yup, the first one always hurts. When I had some work done on my Martin, it came back with a minor scratch on the headstock. I was pissed...until I put a bigger scratch on the top, just under the bridge. That one hurt cuz it was MY FAULT!!!!

    Virtuoso cleaner and polish will take the scratch out.
