Any one have this problem?

What should I do?

Sharpie? Nail polish?

Please help me!

Will this affect the warm and wonderful tones I get with this great bass? :mrgreen:

I have often had this same problem and have treated it two different ways.
1.) Sharpie.
2.) Nothing.

After much exhaustive research and several A/B comparisons, I have determined that tone is unaffected.

A Sharpie is OK, but a black paint pen is better. The Sanford Uni pens are the ones I've used and they don't have the purplish tint the Sharpies sometimes have.

Like JH reccomends, a Paint Pen is what I used. You can see a before and after here:

I ended up using a Forney black paint marker.. Worked perfect! Perfect match.

Thanks again everyone! :D
