Anyone have tips: it's a gouge, the chipped material is still attached, as a scab so to speak. The guitar has a solid cedar top, with satin finish. Any tips are welcome. Except that I'm not ready to cover the thing in stickers haha
Try and paint a thin layer of PVA wood glue into the gouge then pop the 'scab' back in. When it's dried rub a little beeswax over the area to fill any gaps.

Unless you get a professional fix it's always going to show but hey, every ding tells a story.
