I have a backup guitar, a Hagstrom Super Swede, with me at university and I just had a bit of a mishap.
1) I ****ed up and left my guitar face-up on the carpet
2) I left a folding chair nearby leaning on a wall
As I was waking up, I nudged the chair somehow and it fell onto the neck/fretboard of the guitar. The strike landed around the eighth fret, and pressed the high e and b strings into eighth fret. There are two small imperfections now in the fret (small depressions) near the b and e strings on the eighth fret. The neck appears okay and not warped horribly, but the depression near the e string is causing strings to catch when I bend or vibrato the high e or b. The guitar is playable elsewhere, and even around the eighth fret but it's kind of ruining my mojo when the string catches.
Can something like this be fixed? Is it worth it money-wise given the relatively inexpensive nature of the guitar? Is there anything that a skilled repairmen could put in the small imperfection or is this warranting a new eighth fret?
