    I've had a fender geddy lee jazz bass for about a month now, and i've taken reasonably good care of it except for a teeeensy little dent; but today at school production practise i discovered what I originally thought were cat hairs on the back, and they turned out to be horrible scratches! They look like the sort of scratches that a belt buckle might make, but I never wear a belt, so I have no idea how they could've gotten there.

    Anyway... does anyone know how I could get rid of them or something, pleaaaase? :'(

    Get it completely refinished for a few hundred dollars.....

    Seriously though, just live with it, they're going to happen. I used to get a little bummed about those things, I've learned to live with it. I honestly don't care if my basses get scratched or dented, as long as it's not a dent on the back of the neck. I don't go around throwing my basses, but I don't double case and police escort my basses either. I just pick em up, play them, take them with me; I don't baby them, I use them.

    Rivets from your jeans can also put those scratches in there.

    its gives your bass character. As long as the neck is fine its all strait. But if its that serious then dish the cash to refinish
