    Gibson Les Paul Junior Finish Issues/Questions

    you could fill it in using one of those touch up pens from stewmac.. just a little at a time , let it dry repeat until its up to the surface and paper it smooth with some 600 grit down to 1000 and polish it. like drop filling a dent..use the clear lac. pen.
