    I have a guitar that has some deep gouges in it. Not through to the wood but pretty deep.
    So I sanded them out and used polishing compound then buffed them. So the scratch is gone and it looks good the problem I have is that it looks slightly cloudy. Its barely enough to notice and if it wasn't for the part of the guitar that I didn't buff you would never notice it .
    So I was wondering what is the fix for this?
    Thanks in advance .

    Compounds remove scratches left by sandpaper. Polishes remove scratches left by compounds. Try some swirl remover. I like ScratchX, but some don't cause of possible silicone contamination. Meguiars #7 is also a good option.
