I used an ergoplay for many years and the suction caps left a mark on the guitar. What can I do to remove these?
Feedback/suggestions are welcome
A very fine polishing (not rubbing) compound such as used for shining up plastic or automobile finishes.
I've used McGuiar's and 3-M brands on French Polish, nitro and acrylic lacquer with good results. Do it by hand with a clean white cotton pad. Don't overdo the application of polish; just a couple of drops at a time.
PS I have to correct myself here.
What I've been using is 3M "Perfect-it II" rubbing compound. I bought a quart of it long ago to polish a motorcycle. You can get something comparable in a smaller size, I'm sure. Avoid anything with silicone in it as that may interfere with future touch up jobs.
I've seen some serious reacions with latex and nitro finished, but unless the damage is through to the wood I don't think these polishes will harm any type of finish.
