Fossil Boo Hooo! Scratch on my new Lowden 010 (41) RE: Boo Hooo! Scratch on my new Lowden 010 20 Mar 12


There's a small ding on the back of my Cole Clark Fat Lady and the beautiful matte finish on the front is getting quite shiny where my right arm and sleeve rest when I'm picking or strumming.

The ding was caused when I lost control of the neck while putting it into the case and dropped it from about six inches onto the case latch.

I'm very relieved to find others so relaxed about damaging their precious axes. Like them, I was mortified at the time, but now find that a) it doesn't affect the sound (which would *really* piss me off!) and b) adds a bit of character and identifiabilty to the guitar. Not that it really needs any - the bunya pine face is totally unique anyway, but I took photos just in case.

And the sound just keeps getting better. Oh well, guess I'll keep her!
