Pickguard polish?

What can i use to buff a pickguard? i dunno, like toothpaste or something normal like that...

Id have to do it by hand, as i dont have a buffer or anything like that...

Its not like its got dents or anything, its just that it has a lot of swirl marks from pickin, etc...

If you can get some Brasso that would work too. SOME forms of toothpaste works but it REALLY depends on the type of toothpaste.

Car wax will work as long as you don't have lots of heavy scratches.

Re: Pickguard polish?

I have an old bottle of Meguiars plastic polish that is fantastic. I don't know why it works so well, it's just a minimally abrasive liquid. But I think there's something in it, like an oil that stays on the surface and fills in the little scratches. It also leaves a nice wet look. I've used it with great success on CD's too. I don't know where you can find it, but mine's over 10 years old and still kicking.

A product over here in the UK called G10 works very well and so does Clinomyn toothpaste.
They both contain superfine abrasives and combined with some patience they do an excellent job.
They work wonders on scratched CDs & DVDs too
