I have a couple of guitars with a satin black finish, and thinking about getting another. What can I use to clean the body that won't damage the finish?

You're including 'polishing' as damage, right (I would)?

That means nothing abrasive, at all. Water's not bad, honestly. I think Erlewine uses deionized water, but just a damp cloth ought to do fine most of the time.

But eventually, just handling wear will cause shiny spots...not much you can do about that.
