Question My guitar has a broken spot please help

I bought an ibenez for 50 bucks just to have something to play and it has a broken spot. I just want to know if it's a difficult fix or not. At the bottom of the face of the guitar some wood has popped out of the binding. The person I bought it from put some glue on it.

Unless the structure is involved, leave it alone.

Welcome to the forum. The picture is too small to give you any advice on. So you have the piece of wood that popped off?

I genuinely do not think that is a hard fix, most luthiers are more than competant to fix that

For 50 dollar buy in price, would just leave it alone personally as I know I would charge you around 150 to make the damage dis-appear

On a $50 guitar, I would get some of those magic markers they use for furniture touchups, or any felt pen of the right colour, just so it doesn't show.
