Hey,
A friend brought me a guitar he picked 2nd hand that has had a gouge filled in with some kind of crud which is unsightly. It looks like it covered with either clear nail polish or something else. Is there anyone out there that could let me know if I can fix this to look more like it used to?

Any suggestions or ideas welcome.......

Sand it out and reclear it. But not worth the effort in my opinion. Keep playing that guitar long enough and you'll have similar wear all over the fretboard.

Add a whole bunch more and call it a relic? People pay big bucks for that kind of wear.

Set it up in a jig and dremel out the area and fill with a small piece of maple- as mentioned above. Fortunately, it is between grain lines so could be made to look pretty unnoticeable. Not sure it's worth the effort though.

I'm with gtrguy. Leave it be. Too much effort for what it is and besides, every guitar encounters it's own share of war wounds.
Mojo, don'cha know.
