2008 Epiphone Dot Studio WB :: headstock repair (rear).
The rear of the neck was finished at the factory with the color in the topcoat. Usually color is the base coat with top clear coats. I selectively sanded through the color layer for aesthetics while blending in the finish fills so the neck feels smooth. There is still the original finish in this area although it may appear to look like bare wood.
Original break here.
