I own a 50s reissue Stratocaster that I need to get some work done on. It's been in storage (not in a storage locker but someone's house, and not in a garage) for a couple of years, since I moved away from my hometown. Next month I'll be retrieving it. (Yay!) However, I'm not quite sure where to go in NYC to get that work done properly. I don't want my baby screwed up. Details inside. [more inside]

I have a Martin Backpacker Guitar that I love. I bought it 2nd
hand and haven't taken all that good care of it, so the back of the neck has a fair number of small dents (like it would get from being banged against sharp edges) in the wood. This looks crappy and is distracting when moving up and down the fretboard, especially using a slide.
What method could I use to fix theses nicks? I'm thinking some sort of wood-paste and fine sandpaper, but don't want it to come out looking like crap.
Please don't use brand names, as I'm in Chile and while I can probably find the same products, they'll have different names.

I have an old Yamaha SE110 electric guitar with a damaged nut, and I purchased a cheap replacement at one time, but it was too tall, and I didn't feel like filing it. So, are there certain types of nuts besides locking and non-locking and different materials, such as sizes that are specific types of guitars?
