    What would be the best way to fix a neck with a little ding or dent on it.

    Just sand and fill in with wood filler then sand and re-finish?
     
  2. that sounds like a good plan.. But first what type of wood is the neck? Maple is pretty easy to work with and will take filler pretty well.

    If its just a surface ding you may be able to just sand it out. I did that with one a while ago it came out well.

    I have two basses that I would like to fix.

    One has an actual dent. A small one, but one that can't be fixed by sanding alone.

    The other one looks like it's just a piece of the finish that chipped off.

    And they're both maple.
