    i think you're going to have to be more specific. what type of uke is it (what kind of finish), is the scratch just in the finish or down to the wood, etc. more than a few will say to leave the scratch as a sign of character.

    Most time scratches in satin wood need to be sanded down and stained and refinished ......I would let them be and accept them as badges of honor...
    Making music is a gift in itself, and when you can share it ....it is your gift to others

    "How do you remove scratches?"

    I don't...I make more of them...
    I'm not entirely convinced that it is possible to polish a turd. However, if one were to accomplish that feat one would still have a turd, and one all the more noticeable for being shiny.
