: : Okay, looks isn't a big deal, I'll say it from the start....however...black finishes get so sloppy looking with smudges, and so quickly after cleaning. Any remedy for that? I'm sure there's got to be something. I heard of something couple years ago, and forgot what it was, put it on and nothing phases the finish for weeks (or months, I forget).

: Car wax. Seriously. The finish on most solid color black basses is the same paint as used on car bodies. Wax it up with a little turtle wax, and see what happenes...
: This only works on solid color opaque finishes though...don't go waxing a clear finish...

: I'm also curious as to whether something like the G27 scratch remover would work...I've never seen it in action, so I'm not sure if it actually works close up...but could be worth a try.

>>> I own 4 black guitars! I always wipe them down with a flannel cloth
before putting them in the case. About twice a year I'll wax the
finish with a light glazing wax/cleaner. The best one I've found
is called "SUPER GLAZE" made by a company called "THE WAX SHOPPE"
It's easy to use, not messy or chalky, and doesn't cause that white
build up in all the corners. I can usually find this stuff at PEP BOYS
and also use it on my show car!
