ok, so I've posted 2 postings on what I could use to polish, clean, or take out the tiny little scratches (not deep scratches) my Lanikai LU-21CE BK.

Since my uke has a black finish, its really hard to find what I can use to clean it.

Here are some of the things that people said I should use to take out little scratches or polish it

-Dunlop 65 Guitar Polish
-3m Finesse-It
-Virtuoso polish
-Meguiars Plastic Polish

So what should I really use?? =/

And this is the third thread you've started about it?

Did you try any of those? Probably any will work. And dude -try something out before starting yet another thread! Just update this thread once you've tried and succeeded/failed. Got it?

Personally, me, I'd embrace the scratches. But... you... well, they all will work. Just pick one and use it, but be aware the act of handling the uke will re-scratch it up again, so unless you want it to be a pristine museum art piece, I wouldn't stress too hard. Remember, Ukes are to be played.

Just found this today,.....the guy is a repair tec. I never heard of brasso being used like this before. Makes sense on the newer plasticsized finishes since it polished his watch crystal.

Haha, I'm cranky.. but I figured that since the majority went there, I didn't need to :)
(And... I figure, I'm allowed to be cranky every now and then. Especially more now than then :) I claim backache, puffy feet and a constant need to use the ladies room as cause-- No jury will convict me... at least I hope!)

Wait a minute!! I had to check the other computer to make sure my wife wasn't pretending to be from Staten Island, NY! :p
