^^Try shutting up, noob.

I heard somewhere about a polish of somekind that somehow filled in the scratches in the finish. It may have only been for transparent finishes, I dunno. Ask at a music shop.

I have a question for you: why is it that big a deal there's scratches on your guitar?
He who joyfully marches to music in rank and file has already earned my contempt.
He has been given a large brain by mistake, since for him the spinal cord would fully suffice.

If the scratches arn't too deep they can but buffed out, Do a search for AlgeeEaters buffing tuturial that should have all you need.

Well, my very first guitar had this nasty dent on the pain job, went all the way down to the bare wood. this drove me nuts naturally, it was a cherry red color, and it REALLY showed. what i did was fill in the hole with glue, then i put tape on top of the wettish glue to contour it to the guitar. when it dried, it had a perfect glue filler. the tape has to be spot on though, else the fill in doesent quite work. then i just bought some nail polish in the exact same color, you could hardly tell the difference.

im in no way recommending this over sending it to get painted again or something, but in a pinch, it worked for me lol

ok, i had this problem with the back of my epiphone lp. It was scratched from my belt, pissed me off. So i just took my buffer and buffed them out with a very light compound and a foam pad. Threw some paste wax on there and it looked great. Now if you have a buffer you can probably fit it in the front, even tho the area that your talking about is really small. I detail cars, so i have this stuff around my house. if you dont, just go get some meguiars scratch x. work that in with a microfiber towel, and wax over it with a good filler wax. Any paste wax would do fine.

If it's got a clearcoat finish, you could buff it out with some rubbing compound and wax over it

I for some really stupid reason decide to hit my guitar of a snare drum (i really don't no why) luckily it was just a cheap Jaguar copy i got and have been trying to get it more like a jaguar (changing neck, pickups etc.) but it has a really deep scratch in the body now, how do you get rid of it??? its natural finish with a lacquer over it
