    On the very tip of my headstock there is a small scratch about 4mm in length. Its starting to bother me beacaus of the contrast between the black paint and the not black scratch.

    Should I just use a small bit of a acrylic paint to touch it up? I'm more familiar with oils than I am acrylics so would this be a wise thing to do?

    Thanks,
    Alex

    I have used Tester's Model paint on my main bass for years, and it works great.

    They have quite a color selection, so you should be able to find a very close match.

    Thanks alot. I used some Acrylic Flat Black and it came out great. I was thinking of trying the Gloss Enamel Flat Black, but I know from my art that Acrylics always dry fast. I should've taken before and after pics, but hindsight 20/20.

    So I'm back to playing in style. Thanks again.
