Can a lutheir fix this
Can a luthier "fix" or mask this kind of marks?
Certainly it can be fixed, but if it were one of my instruments I would not worry about it until I planned to sell it, or was just anxious to visit my luthier again.
That's a relief, thanks.
Yes, that would be an easy fix for any trained professional to make practically invisible. The big thing would be to not let it go too long as to get dirty and caked with rosin, otherwise it will require more or become nearly impossible to hide.
Whatever you do, don't try to fix it yourself with furniture-touch-up products. Anything containing grease or wax will soak into the wood and make any kind of subsequent proper repair much difficult later.
I've had worse than this. The luthier I go to touched it up and didn't bother to charge me. Like Paul says, do not try to do it yourself.
The bridge slipped and did that, when I was trying to ajust it.
I'd worry more about how your bridge isn't straight.
I know it wasn't, but it is now.
