On the Basses forum I've posted pics of my new old Ibanez SR400 trying to get the approximate age. While that debate continues I intend to clean it up and start playing it. There are a bazillion pick scratches on the front; no biggie, I know how to get those out. But the headstock has a couple of scrapes that marred the clear coat on the front - not down to the paint though. 1) How to fill or obscure these? They're just a little too deep to polish away and I'd like them to be unobtrusive unless you look up close. 2) How best to make sure the final polish on the body is smooth and free of those tiny circular scratches that most polishes leave? I have a coarse polish (which is really more of a fine polish), a fine polish and a shine/protectant made for poly finishes but I'm not sure how much time to spend on each one (and the cloth to use) to make the final result smooth and "shiny" as opposed to kinda dull and lifeless? I'm willing to spend the time.
