ok so my new axe is black on black, i bought used so on to removing heavy scratches and after an hour of polishing thinking maybe go for a sanded down matte look instead plus hides the imperfections what do you guys think
or maybe i will just repaint it cause black looks f'd up soooo easily already hating the black
What do YOU like?
If you want it shiny, then use a light abrasive polish to get the scratches out, then wax, polish and buff.
I think it would look better shiny, but it's your choice.
Will this be your main axe? If not, use it as your refinishing test guitar.
Try both to see what you like better.
