    This is a picture of my `88 Studio. If you look closely you can see what looks like what once was a neck pocket or pickup cavity at the base of the neck. The guitar has always been this way and never had any work done to it. I guess my question here is twofold, 1; what was going on here during the build and 2, can the divot in the top be repaired not to show?

    Thanks Jazzedout, evidently this is something in the original rout for the pickup/neck that is later filled in when a single coil is installed instead of a humbucker pickup. I guess if it's a birthmark of the guitar it can stay.
