Is there anything that even I could use to fix a pegbox scratch? The normal thing to do, taking it to a luthier, does not seem absolutely needed at the moment, and as I am not near my usual luthier, and I will not be until a few months when I go back home, can I use something to cover a scratch in the bottom of the pegbox?
I remember having read about something some people used to cover scratchs on their non-ebony fingerboards. I forgot the name, I wonder if it can be used to cover the scratch that right now casts shadows upon my soul - it does, it really does.
I should have been more careful, I know that. My E string broke, and the only reserve string I had was a dominant E, almost totally unwinded. Being an emergency and needing a string right away, I managed to keep it in the peg, somehow, after many unsuccessful attempts. Checking when we were done I saw the ugly scratch that you see below.
