    Pull it out with a piece of masking tape or suck it out with a vacuum.

    Plan A
    Tape with strong glue. (gaffer or similar)
    Apply to dent.... and pull.... fast...

    Plan B
    You don't want to know... just make Plan A work.....

    And don't forget....
    you can just always leave it as it is..

    Depending on how badly it's dented a piece of Scotch tape might pull it out.

    All good suggestions above. When those have failed Ive used a pin that I "rolled the end over" very slightly by tapping on it making a tiny barb. This works on screen type only though. Bob

    I use a small had vac. That's it, takes longer to plug it in.

    Will it have any impact on tone?

    If it's metal...not much can be done.

    If it's fiber...bend the very tip of a needle with some needlenose pliers to just past a 90* angle...insert and pull the dent out.
