I've used Solvol Autosol to polish out scratches (chrome polish from when I made my beer money from cleaning cars); good stuff but fairly abrasive so go easy and try out on somewhere that doesn't show, such as the side of the body.

Also following the car-cleaning theme, I'm trying out one of the bodywork clay products on an old guitar, to see if it can polish out pick-scratches. The stuff I've got was bought for my car (a 20-odd year old VW should anyone be remotely interested) and is made by Bilt-Hamber. It's basically a lump of plasticine which (according to the blurb which came with it) has Harry Potter polishing qualities and will restore a gleaming shine to any surface... hmmm, I'm reserving judgment on that.

After having owned about 6 or 7 Mk1 and Mk2 golf Gti's, I am always interested in hearing about 20 odd year old Volkswagens.

My wife and I still run VW's

Meguiars still do a clay by the way. I will maybe try some on a guitar.

You have been a bit quiet bro (Too much cheap brandy?)

Hi Hoax

Yeah, I made a bit of a pact with myself... more fretboard, less keyboard. Trouble is, every time I pitch up on here it seems to lead to a GAS attack and I have to smuggle another one into the house. But it's Tuesday night, wife went out to her arc-welding class or something so what the hell!

I've discovered that Lidl actually sell stuff you can drink that is worth buying! I decided to try out their more expensive brandies over Xmas/ new year. Not exactly a "Which" report (so difficult to compose whilst falling over) but give the other tipples a go. You may be pleasantly surprised.

The motor is a '89 Mark 2 Golf, bought on impulse (bit like some of the guitars). I sold a 1963 Rover P4 a while back to fund the guitar bug. Then I got the car bug again..

Back on topic for the P150. Have bought and tried the Meguiars polish Barry and agree this is a great finishing product but its nowhere near the mark for cleaning up the level of scratches on this guitar.
Would go for Farecla G3 then G6 and then G10 or the Meg stuff. None of this is cheap so if youre not going to do this often either borrow some or G3 to G10/Meg and a bit more elbow grease.

Like the others, my 150's cutaway bindings have been pulled away for years with no issues. Love the trans finish too. The Prestiges were/are definitely LP killers!!!

Neil, I love the translucent colour on yours! But is it brown or reddish? Hard to tell from your avatar. Maybe you posted pics before and I've missed them...
