    when I first got my bass, I was a little careless, and I got some scratches in the clear coat. Theyb aren't very deep, but there are alot of them. It's on a sunburst and I don't want to screw that up.

    Should I sand first, and then use nail polish, or just use nail polish, or just sand. I don't really want to mess up this bass because it's a nice squier (pscht) and I'm gonna upgrade it.

    suggestions? Help?

    hey man i wouldn't sand anything because it will make the finish become dull unless you have a way to buff out the finish. Also do not use nail polish it will never buff out like the original finish and it will stick out like a sore thumb.
