Scratch Remover for JEM?

Hi, I ran across a review at Ultimate-Guitar for a scratch remover for JEM that somebody apparently got great results with complete with before & after photos. Has anyone here tried this guitar scratch remover product & have any feedback?
For some reason the forum system here isn't letting me post the link but its searchable in Google. Or you can copy/paste it here:

Anyone tried this stuff?

I havent tried it, but i always use auto t-cut, then polish after with autoglym super resin polish, perfect smooth shine everytime.

I get good results from 3M finesse it or Meguiars Scratch X, alternatively, if you dont want the mess of using a finishing comound, you can try micro mesh from stew mac. Its like a buffing pad that goes to ridiculously fine grits.

Re: Scratch Remover for JEM?

Thanks guys. Scratch X isn't going to do the job for me, its not strong enough. T-Cut I haven't tried but might be too strong, I've heard it has ammonia in it (don't want that on my guitars!) and also a strong abrasive which might not be good on a thinner guitar finish.
