small nicks in swamp ash Corvette

Discussion in 'Luthier's Corner' started by Anarchyok, Aug 9, 2005.

  1. Hey guys, apologies if this has been covered, but i did a search and found nothing...

    I've recently bought a new Warwick Corvette in swamp ash, natural oil finish. Even tho I'm very careful, I've had a few small nicks appear in the finish, some above the pickups where my nail has scored the wood. I intend to put some temp covers over that area (some kind of clear but thick tape) but would like to sand the affect areas lightly first to return them to their new glory.

    What is the best grade of sandpaper to do this job??

    Thanks guys

    It depends how deep the scratches are. Do you have any pictures?
  3. they are very small nicks, i tried some 400 grade sandpaper and it worked very nicely...thanks anyway
