    Hello All,

    I picked up a Schaller bridge to replace the Fender Hi-Mass bridge that came on my bass. I noticed that when I removed the Fender bridge, there were some irregularities in places where the bridge came in direct contact with the finish (which is nitro). I'd like to get rid of these, since the new bridge is smaller than the Fender bridge -- what's the best way to go about doing this? Feedback appreciated!

    Just use automotive products to buff and polish. I use Meguir's stuff, like Scratch-X, but any quality stuff should work just fine.

    . Drop fill, level sand, polish is good advise

    Nitro is car paint, circa 1950. If it works on a car from that era, it works on nitro.
