What form of polish/cleaner if any do you use on your guitar?
Virtuoso cleaner and polish.
I think this stuff is the best I've seen.
Most excellent polish......:AOK
I've used all kinds of sprays and creams, but lately I'm diggin' the Fender McGuilers (spelling?) polish.
GERLITZ NUMBER ONE
That and Meguiar's Hi Tech Yellow Wax close behind.
Have to try Virtuoso next.
3M Imperial Hand Glaze.
Same stuff I use on my car. Gets it good and shiny. Sure hope it doesn't f*ck up my guitar years from now.
Wax = P21S Carnauba Wax for that Concours quality shine. It's also the easiest wax you'll ever apply. Not a big deal on a guitar, but really nice for a car.
Wonderful stuff. It gets my vote.
Anybody ever tried Trick Drum wipes?
I use plexiglass cleaner and a microfiber cloth on my poly finish, safe for plastics cheap and works on anything plastic, got it at home depot for 3$ as compared to Monster lcd cleaner for 25$
just the microfiber cloth on my nitro fender
I agree. I found that it actually cleans the guitar without blotching or streaking.
...and, its a delicious dessert topping!
Meguire's #9 or Stelling Glyde Coat.
3M imperial hand glaze will not harm your guitar. It doesn't have any silicone . You could probably use it everyday without a problem. Truthfully, it make stuff look fantastic, but doesn't last very long. 1-2 car washes on your car and it's gone.
For fingerprints, I use Meguiars Final Inspection spray. For polishing, I use a hand glaze followed by a quality wax.
Virtuoso on nitro ... a damp cloth on poly.
Before Martin went nuts, I used their thin/watery cleaner/polish. I've not been able to find the original stuff anywhere, so I've been using Dunlop's Formula 65 - very similar stuff, more 'cleaner' than 'polish'.
Me too, the Virtuoso Cleaner does an excellent job on nitro, I never bother with the actual Polish which is a separate product.
