    I love my Sterling, but the original owner must have worn one of those spiked belts when he played it. There are many surface scratches around the neck plate and top body contour. Does anyone have a good system for buffing them out? I have been thinking about Novus plastic polish, but I am unsure of the best treatment for the EB/MM finishes. Suggestions?

    3M Finesse-it II Finishing Material used with a white microfiber cloth is the best solution I've found to take scratches out of any finish.
