    I have an acoustic guitar that looks foggy on it's back and sides. What is it? And is there a way to remove it?

    That can be 1 of three things. Hard to tell even looking at in person sometimes.

    1. moisture under the finish. Can be carefully fixed by drying it out. Not recommended if your guitar is already dry.

    2. finish has actually degraded. Very finish specific.

    3. Haze on top. I've successfully got this off with commercial guitar cleaners.

    Get yourself some Virtuoso Cleaner and Polish, do the two step on it, should take care of it.
