Mysterious Scratch


Hardtail

Recommended Posts

My Les Paul's been around awhile so it has its share of scratches and dings.

 

Right now, the Strat is still pristine looking. I'm sure I'll get that first scratch eventually.

 

Anyway, I restrung the LP last night and put it away. A few minutes ago, I took it out, tuned it up and started playing. I felt a scratch on the back of the neck around the 9th fret area.

 

I turned it around.. sure enough, it's a scratch. Nothing major but it definitely wasn't there before.

 

Like I said, I don't mind the scratches but I have no idea where this one came from. It had to have been when I was putting on new strings. Guess I have to be more careful next time I re-string the old girl.

For stringing, setting up and repairing my guitars, I use a folding ironing board. It is well padded and elevated so I stand over the instrument to work on it. My first Les Paul dropped of the strap and the headstock landed on my MXR Distortion+. I lived with that chip in the finish for about 12 years before trading it in on a new Les Paul. Now the new one is 15 years old.

Thanks! That's a great idea that I'm going to try next time. :thu:
