    Last night, The place we were playing at was at a VFW hall type of event. Well we were packing up and the event staff were in a hurry. A guy grabs my case brings it to me, when he handed it to me my bass fell out of it's case i guess the bright side it wasn't it didn't land on the neck. But now I have a ding to repair , what kind of poly does Ibanez use? Is this best left to a pro?

    Ouch! So sorry, bud. That looks like a tough fix. Certainly something best left to an experienced pro.

    Very thick poly judging by the pics. Tough to repair unvisible without lots of sanding and spraying.

    I will bring it to my luthier guy, just so it's repair and sealed. I can handles it being visible just don't want further damage. Now I know why some of my music buds are aholes when someone touches their stuff. But I wasn't right there when he did this if so I would have said something.

    To fix that correctly is going to require a complete refinish.

    Pains me to say it, but yep, I think a refin is called for here...
