Below is the story how I decided to buy 'Guitar Scratch Remover - Player's Kit Standard' and what results I got. I photographed my guitar just before applying the product and after to see how well it's really going to work in my real life situation.
Some time ago I bought the pre-owned electric guitar Cort M600T. Generally the guitar was in the good condition, but a few scratches in its finish at the top of the body slightly irritated me.
I really don't like scratches on a beautiful guitar body.
First I thought a scratch is a scratch and there's not much I can do about that. Anyway I typed something like "how to remove scratches on the guitar" in the online search, hoping to get good advice.In the beginning I thought these videos might be deceiving to make people buy, as so many others on the net. To check more about the remedy I clicked "watch the video on youtube" button to read the comments above. The comments mostly were positive and I started believing that this might help.
So I decided to give it a try and ordered the "Player's Kit Standard" package. It cost just about US$20 plus a few $ for shipping. Big money was not at risk.
When I received the 'Guitar Scratch Remover', I read the manual and started to work on my guitar. First I rubbed the polish #1 around the scratches with the microfiber towel from the kit. 5 minutes of work and the scratches which were painful on the eyes really diminished and sometimes were hardly visible. After that I switched to the #2 blend with the blue label, and did the same.
After that I began to remove the thin minor scratch near the bottom of the guitar where the finish was actually the same as on the top. Strangely but this one was very difficult to remove. (I didn't publish the photo of this scratch because couldn't take a clean picture of it.)
I was switching between the #1 and #2 blend many times in a couple of sessions, hardly rubbing the remedy at the guitar body over the scratch. Only after this the scratch had almost completely gone. But even now I can still see a very thin part of it when looking at the spot from close proximity and only at a certain angle.
It's important to carefully read the whole manual that goes with the product before you start polishing.
Below are important warnings from the manual, I've put them on this page so you could decide if this product is right for you before buying.
