I know that it's possible to rub out a scratch on my cars finish using rubbing and polishing compound. Does the same thing work on a guitars finish if the scratch is not to deep?

  • Assuming the finish is cellulose, and it may well be - ask Fender, with model and s.n. then the process is the same as with car paintwork (when they used celly paint ! Or - leave it, and when it gathers many more, and you're famous, Fender will make copies to sell at ridiculous prices... – Tim Feb 23 '18 at 14:57
  • Your comment implies when my guitar gets scratched up, I'll be famous. :) – skinny peacock Feb 23 '18 at 15:23
  • The two things have been known to happen in that order! – Tim Feb 23 '18 at 16:53

to answer your question, yes you can use car scratch remover, but go gently. In addition, try it on a hidden area first.
