    I was adjusting the relief on my Fender 63 AVRI p-bass and the neck slid a bit and chipped a bit of the poly finish. Do you think a reputable repair shop in Toronto could fix this?

    Thanks

    A reputable repair shop in Toronto should be able to fix that. I know one that definitely could, but it may not be worth it. Expect to pay between $75 and $100 - it's labour intensive.

    I appreciate that. It's probably 12th fret?

    That's not the shop I was thinking of, but I am sure they could do it. Not sure they would though.

    Too much money for that little chip. If you want it to be almost unnoticed you could paint with some hobby colors. They're cheap and I'm sure you can find a close match. Daphne blue finish? I.e: Gunze has a very close color: H96 "Smoke blue"

    Too much money? Hardly.

    Drop fills on curved surfaces are time consuming. More time equals more money.

    If all someone wants is a little bit of color so the chip is not so easy to notice then "a little dab'll do ya." But don't ask a pro to do it. They have best practices to follow and standards to maintain.

    If someone wants the best they should be prepared to pay for it.
