Anyone who wants to keep their instrument pristine knows how frustrating minor scratches and pick marks can be.
Normal polishes won't remove those, so many of us resort to more abrasive options, such as T-Cut, which can be too harsh for some finishes. EternaShine's Guitar Scratch Remover is a new solution.
The package includes two polishes, one slightly more abrasive than the other, for those small scratches, plus a microfibre cloth. EternaShine says there's enough polish for about 25 applications.
Designed for any modern gloss finish (not satin or older, worn finishes) we try it on our well-gigged Yamaha NCX2000, which is beginning to look a little tatty with a lot of marks that a casual clean hasn't removed. Using the coarser number two polish on the back where small scratches are clearly visible, along with lots of elbow grease, our favourite Yamaha soon looks much smarter, especially after a final application of polish number one.
While some of the marks did disappear, some where still visible, though seemed less obvious; to remove these you'd probably need good ol' T-Cut.
