Scratched pickguard

You could try plastic polish such as Novus or Meguiars; Novus, for example, comes in different grits. You can use sucesssively fine grits to polish out the scratches.

Test/practice on something similar before actually using on your pickguard.

Hope this helps.

Replace it? No matter what, you will forever have the marks. I tried on my old one to fix it up using micromesh stuff. It's actually made to polish lenses. That worked well, but it took forever, and I ended up just putting a new one on...lol Got a spare now though.
