Thanks!

Let us know if it does the trick so that we can pass along the info to others.

I tried the Maquires. No luck, but I was afraid to rub really hard on the application. Oh well!

Yes, I bought the right product. It's like the smudge is "in" the finish, not on top of the finish. If I was using this on my car paint, I would bear down harder on the application. On the guitar I applied it pretty lightly onto the finish, then polished fairly hard; if that makes any sense. This is all my fault, but I know better now! Thanks for trying to help! Hey, I didn't buy it to look at, I bought to play, and it sounds great!

I've got an old Paul that you probably can't find a square inch on it that doesn't have a scratch, and a lot of areas are down to the wood. But I still carefully wipe that boy down with a soft rag after every playing.

Sorry for the late reply. Really didn't do anything as far as I could tell

There is a product called Blush Eraser (pic) that, if used correctly, actually reflows the lacquer. I use it to blend the resprayed topcoat into the original surface. It only works on nitrocellulose lacquer and is primarily used to remove the white haze from water or excessive humidity exposure. I have excellent results for what I use it for but using it on a new guitar in one specific area might keep me from applying this.

This note is just to inform you of the product and its use. Not to recommend you do so.

Thanks for your help. I've determined that I've been a little "psycho" about the finish, and am going to leave it alone. I'll Just play it, wipe it off and put it in the case.

Thanks for the tip, Greg! I have never heard of that product before.
