So I noticed a while ago a small crack in the finish on my 10yr old Lakland Skyline on the horn near the strap hook that I have slowly watching grow over the ensuing weeks (it was originally only ~1/2"). I'm trying to figure out the best way to fix it. Yea, I know the standard answer is "take it to an expert" but I'm short on funds.
I've seen various videos and discussions where they recommended filling it with either high-viscosity superglue, lacquer, varnish, or something similar and then wet-sanding it. Ok, I say, I could do that but which do I use?
Searching TalkBass I find generally people say "cracks are character in a bass, just leave them" but this one is growing so I need to do something soon. Any ideas on how to fix this?
